Great story. I am a product of the Pink Houses.
My parents moved in in the late 1950's and we left in the mid 1970's. Crime, drugs and gangs were surfacing back then. My parents were glad to get us out. We were glad too. I am a healthcare administrator, my brothers are retired military and doing well.
I am proud of everyone that is able to get out ot he Pink Houses. I went back to visit last year and everything looks the same. Scary, hopeless, depair and depression. There is much more to life.
