Gangster City –  Cabrini Green

Gangster City – Cabrini Green

If you have seen the horror film “Candy Man” then you would have seen Cabrini Green. As they use the projects as the filming location. At its peak, Cabrini–Green was home to 15,000 people,living in mid- and high-rise apartment buildings totalling 3607 units. Over the years, gang violence and neglect created terrible living conditions for the residents, and the name “Cabrini–Green” became synonymous with the problems associated with public housing in the United States. The last of the buildings in Cabrini–Green was demolished in March 2011. The area has been undergoing redevelopment since the late 1990s, into a combination of high-rise buildings and row houses, with the stated goal of creating a mixed-income neighbourhood, with some units reserved for public housing tenants. Controversy regarding the implementation of these plans has arisen.
