The *New* Projects

I saw this ad on the back of the Onion newspaper and thought it was a funny joke. I called the number on the ad and checked the website. Turns out it's real. Flatubush Gardens are the projects for the new poor a.k.a. middle class.

Pay only $1025 a month to have your own one bedroom with new hardwood floors in the charming neighborhood of Flatbush, Brooklyn! Only blocks from Bed-Sty, and drug dealers available right on the corner! But to rent an apartment you have to pass a criminal background check first. Gotta keep the riff-raff out.

Were these buildings once projects then the inside was renovated? They kinda look like the projects in the opening of Westside Story.
