interesting thread... is this about 'commieblocks' only? There're many similar building in non-communists nations.

Riverside Plaza in Minneapolis was originally intended to be about 30,000 housing units. Fortunately less than 10% of the project was built. It was planned to be mixed housing with apartments for the poor, middle class and rich. It looks like a commieblock but it is actually market rate apartments, albeit some of the cheapest in the city. Minneapolis doesn't have much public housing, instead the poor are given cash vouchers to rent regular apartments at market rates.

We have some "commieblocks" here. Except for the last pic (which is a elderly home), these are all public housing projects in surrounding cities, not Hartford. A friend of mine lives in one of them.

Here in Hartford, most public housing is low-rise, and they are demolishing them.

Some commieblocks from Poznań (http://www.aerofoto-kaczmarczyk.com/...id=31&catid=87)

Winogrady district






Rataje district








Most of you will probably say it's horrible, inhuman etc. I lived in estate like these and I must say it was really comfortable.
