Atlanta tearing down last projects
ATLANTA, June 20 (UPI) -- Atlanta, the city that built the first public housing project in the United States, plans to tear down its last one within a year.
The demolition is part of a 15-year effort to get rid of big projects, The New York Times reported Saturday. By the 1990s, the city had the highest percentage in the country of residents living in projects, many of them crime-ridden ghettos.
About 15,000 project apartments in 32 complexes are now gone.Spotted here
