Well the southern half of Islington generally is a wealthy place, its not going to score too well in these type of things because of more than 40% of the boroughs population lives in council housing but for the private sector there is great demand....

Islington is terribly polarised, like many inner London boroughs. I live in the southernmost part of the borough (the old LCC Metropolitan Borough of Finsbury), and huge swathes are council estates (very bad WW2 bomb damage from bombs over-shooting the City of London). The remaining Georgian housing stock generally goes for £1 million+ per house however, so people in the borough (especially my part) are either very rich or very poor. many of the Georgian houses are still split into council flats too, and with the uneven floors and terrible sound insulation these can be some of the worst housing stock in London despite looking beautiful from the outside.

For example, my original Council flat is the 2nd floor flat in the house on the end of this terrace in the middle of Islington (I let it out now), and the entire house is Council... You certainly wouldn't think it, would you?!

ranny fash, Im from Egland myself, I agree many estates look similar. some of Glasgow's public housing looks prettyy terrible. I must say I have also noticed many highrises in thr cities ive been to.Those projects shown had a very big problem with violence before Katrina hit the city, now the city's trying to knock most of the different projects around New Orleans down, dont know exactly which ones but theres been a great deal of opposition from the residents and other members of the public. Who knows where all these unfortunate people ave been displaced. More photos to come.............

Calders, Glasgow



Barmulloch, Glasgow



Craig Millar, Glasgow

I was reading an article on a Italian hip-hop site where they have rap concert at The Tor Bella Monaca in Rome. It said that alot of the inhabitants came from the province and went to the city for better opportunities. There is still immigration in Italy but not as much as those you would see in other countries in Continental Europe and the UK.

As for Vele di Scampia, I would imagine the place turning to a ghetto. Just by look at the architecture, I would imagine an urban decay happening.

Lugano Switzerland:





And this is one of the worst blocks of the city, a man threw himself off the 15th floor a couple of years ago, the entrance is full of broken letterboxes and graffiti, the hallways have no lights and are always dark, there are two elevators, one of them has been out of use in years now and the other is very ruined, this is basically where all of Lugano's poorer people live in:

Jardoga, this thread is about public housing, for low income earners. Not about the most affluent apartment towers in Australia.

Yeah there are some fab 'proper' tower blocks in Melbourne, big brutal beasts.

I remember you see some to the east from the train between the city centre and Collingwood (North Richmond area I think), I remember thinking it looked like the view across Manchester during the opening titles to 'Coronation Street'.

Some 'proper' Melbourne commieblocks:
