"Housing Project Entrance Street"

There's not a ton to say about Lillian Wald Dr because it's a tiny street off of Ave D that serves as the entrance to Lillian Wald Houses. Lillian Wald was a nurse and activist for low income groups around the turn of the 20th century. She helped the fight to abolish child labor, start the Red Cross and organize proper health care for tenement residents in New York City. Lillian Wald Houses was established in 1949 as a housing project / tenement and remains that today. Lillian Wald Drive leads to a housing project with 16 buildings that houses around 1800 low income apartments. They're not awful looking buildings but they definitely look like tenements. To me, all tenement buildings look the same -- even the ones that have been converted into luxury buildings (like Stuy Town). There aren't any restaurants, bars or activities around and I don't expect that any are going to pop up on a housing project drive any time soon. So, unless you need low income housing assistance, there's really no reason to come here.
  • Mahattan living for low income
  • Nothing to do
  • Scary at night
