It was definitely after I moved to mid-town east, for one, scenery looks a lot better...
There were tons of shootings where I lived. Some gang from the East River Projects. I think the shootouts were common where I lived because of gang members seeing each other at the 6 train station (@103rd). When I used to come home from school late at night the police officers would tell me that I should move to another neighborhood.
Stuff like this...
