My parents, now both deceased, moved to Co-op City when the Marble Hill projects got too raunchy. Even at the age of 19 or 20, I knew I didn't want to live in Co-op City, and most of my Brnnx friends felt the same way. It was so "off-the-beaten-track" that getting to Midtown by express bus (when I worked at the Record Hunter while still living at home) took more than an hour, and gettting to the Fordham Road-Concourse shopping area took quite while by bus as well. My parents were also on the list for the Amalgamated (near Science, Clinton, Walton, etc.), and I always wished the Amalgamated had called them first.
