Public housing, projects, PJs, housing estates, commieblocks, banlieues, etc.

Most major cities have public housing providing home for those less fortunate. They are either owned by the government or runned by housing authority or development boards. They may be high-rise commieblocks or some 5 storie blocks.

I would like to see pics of public housing in your city

Banlieues is not the best term because banlieue is the french for suburbs
Some banlieues are poor but some are very rich.

The best term is HLM. (public housing)

In Paris
