One thought on “The Plumley Village Story

  1. I was a poor kid in one of those families displaced by this project. We were so poor we squatted in many of these condemned homes until we were forced out by demolition then we simply moved to another one. After a while we got rent subsidy in a home in nearby Jefferson where we lived until the project was complete. We were one of the first families to move into these new apartments in 1971, at 7 Laurel St on the second floor. Of course the project deteriorated quickly due to crime, neglect and vandalism.
