Yeah. Who could forget the open air drug dealing. How about the outright disrepect for the law and the few decent people that lived there?

That place is nothing more than a breeding ground for criminals.

There is a reason they tore the garbage down.

The fact remains that it was all blacks and one of the most dangerous housing projects on the east coast. Whites have nothing to do with that.

The only thing that one learns from a neighborhood like this and the people that live in it is how to defraud the government with welfare and bastard child scams. It's discusting.

Ida barbour taught me alot of things especially building determination to do better and to want better and also learning how to deal with not having things, street smarts, and culturally learning life in all in general. I see a few white people comments and talking down the community but where did you score your crack weed and dope from. While its nothing to glorify decent people did come from the projects such as me and my lil sister.

Its called gentrification, white folks who lived in churchland and beyond who worked downtown Portsmouth and beyond got tired of paying alot of money for gas and ways to get to work so the plan was hatched, lets tear down all the hoods and put up half million dollar homes (where academy park use to be) them ninjas cant afford that, that will push them back down to churchland and beyond and white folks can move downtown closer to their jobs, but looks like its about to backfire.
