Housing Committee of the House of the House of Representatives Congressional Hearing
Robert Garcia Papers, 1976-1994
Statement to the House of Representatives by Father Louis Gigante of SEBCO (South East Bronx Community Organization). His statement describes the plight of his South Bronx neighborhood after many residents left for better housing and safe areas to live in, and the remaining community was destroyed through drugs, crime, corrupt landlords, burning buildings, and other societal problems. He states that a community of volunteers worked together to provide support for the neighborhood, but that they were outweighed by devastation and the city's ignorant attitude towards the South Bronx.
