Meu Deus, que bairro sem graça, sem vida. As praias parecem não ser tão ruins, mas as construções ao redor são mortas, sem graça, sem emoção.
Não dá nem para comparar a qualidade de vida e riqueza americana com a brasileira, mas aqui os bairros litorâneos são os mais valorizados e bonitos, mesmo nas cidade mais pobres...

These are not suburbs, they're city neighborhoods.

Well done Nexis. Very good shot of that huge cargo ship, I've always wanted to get lost on one of those. Btw, those homes at the arverne by the sea development are incredibly cheap looking. I'm surprised they didn't fly away when sandy hit.

From what I've seen of the beaches in Brazil they're are far and away much more pleasant than anything we have in New York. The weather in Brazil is also much warmer year round which makes the neighborhoods near the beaches of brazil much sought after. Our beaches do not compare to anything in Rio or Recife. Living near the beach during our winters can be very unpleasant and so our seaside neighborhoods are not very sought after, at least within the city limits of new york. The city also thought of the brilliant idea of building massive amounts of public housing that has brought poverty to many of these seaside neighborhoods, further decreasing their appeal. Things are changing but the architecture does remain very dull, I agree. Not everything can be glitzy like Manhattan, that's reality.

Any plan to tear down the housing projects?
They should be replaced with something nicer.

Theres no space to put the displaced residents , but they have done this in Urban Jersey and Connecticut. Replacing the projects with mixed use redevelopments.... The empty lots in Coney Island have developments planned but its stop and go at this point.

As nexis mentioned, there really would be no where else for the displaced to go. Most of the housing projects are staying put for good but I believe a few are coming down in Far Rockaway but nothing too drastic.
