Salut Ronan, j'ai vu sur You Tube la vidéo que vous avez fournis. Est-ce que c'était vraiment comme le Bronx? Tu as vu ça? C'est effrayant!

Hola Marta Entre mi fotografía y el vídeo, hay 8 años de diferencia! Pero era como este es vrai.En los años 70, el lugar fue destruido y la mayoría de los más peligrosos USA.Aproximadamente 150 por ahí en la pandilla.

This actually is the intersection of Minford Place and East 172nd Street, a block away from Charlotte Street, and looking north-east down Minford toward the Herman Ridder School (the tower at left). The burned-out apartment houses on the right side of the street have been refurbished.
