Project houses in The Bronx, New York.
Public housing in New York were built by NYCHA (New York City Housing Authority) using low cost materials and due to that, the houses get mold, infiltrations and other problems. Living with this environment leads to health diseases such as asthma and other respiratory allergies. As they are public houses, people wait for 2 years to get their houses fixed and as time goes by, the exposure to these fungus leads to an intolerant public health situation. The public houses are scattered in the city: lower Manhatthan, harlem and the bronx. However, in the Bronx, the situation is a severe issue where the asthma death rate is one of the highest in the city. Living in these houses is living side by side with a "silent murder".
