Group of youths spending time outside Queensbridge Houses South...believed to be the most violent section of Queensbridge.

"Queensbridge" is the largest public housing in the US. It houses over 7,000 residents — a place that has seen both crime as well as success through notable names such as rappers Nas, Mobb Deep and NBA players Sean Green and Vern Fleming among others. Queensbridge is a place where crime, hope and fame can be found. 

The following images are part of a portrait driven project representing some of the men and women who call Queensbridge their home.
