Saints in the Shadows
What’s in a name, ami? Call Roseland by any other name, and would it smell so sweet? Nope, ‘cause this neighborhood plain ol’ stinks through and through. This place is just one step above Gary Hell Zone, and that’s not saying much.
Settled by Dutch immigrants in the 1840s, Roseland tried to fashion itself into quite the cosmopolitan community — until the gangs took over. And that’s where they’ve stayed until this very day, looting, shooting, and generally making living conditions as uncomfortable as possible for folks just trying to get by.
