Again, I don't know what you mean by "gangstas".

But I can tell you that Downtown Brooklyn is NOT Midtown. And while there are a lot of good things happening in the city right now, your sentiments are a sign of everything that is WRONG with the city. It's the "out with the natives" and in with the "flashy, expensive, gentrified" streets that New Yorkers don't recognize. Let everything look squeaky clean, and God forbid the people who actually live there, and have lived their their whole lives should walk down the streets. No, bring in the newcomers to shine it all up.

That sir, is exactly something New York doesn't need more of, and is not what makes the city great.
NEW YORK heals.

“Office buildings are our factories – whether for tech, creative or traditional industries we must continue to grow our modern factories to create new jobs,” said United States Senator Chuck Schumer.
