The Most Powerful Gangs In Brooklyn

New York Magazine put out a very interesting info graphic charting the general territories of the most prevalent gangs in NYC. The Bloods are the most dominating force in Brooklyn by a large margin, the Crips being their closest competitor at 1/4th the size borough wide. The Trinitarios and Dominicans Don’t Play have a presence in Williamsburg, and the Latin Kings hold sway in Coney Island, Sunset Park, and Bushwick.

So who are they? And where are they? “Everywhere,” says Michael Hines, a gang mediator at the city-funded Council for Unity. “It’s not like the old days, where you had Bloods and Crips and there was a political ideology. These kids just get together, call themselves whatever.” But with so many crews and cliques—Money Over Bitches, Vatos Locos, 40 Wolves, Gun Clappin Goonies, Get Money Boys, From Da Zoo, the New Dons, 28 Gunnaz, Stack Money Family, and so on—it’s hard for even the most connected gang banger to keep everybody straight.

  • Bolt of #lightning above the Virgin River, between The Sentinel and Twin Brothers. NOAA just released severe flash #flood warnings for The Narrows from 6-10pm tonight, this is the storm they're warning people about. Hope the hikers out there either charge out of there or find high ground. @thephotosociety @outsidemagazine
  • Steering wheel and dashboard of an old 1948 #Pontiac Silver Streak Coupe. One of about a hundred rusted out cars in Bill's yard in Glendale, Utah.
  • The Narrows in Zion. I was shuttled sixteen miles to a tributary and hiked down the entire length of the slot canyon. Serious bidness.
  • Not the kind of #weather you want to see when you're at 2100' of #elevation and 4 miles from the ground by #trail. I could hear the #thunder in the distance, rounded the corner and saw this creeping up. 20 minutes later I'm watching #lightning strike and only counting to three before the thunder echoed through the #canyon. A little more than I anticipated from #observation point in #Zion.
  • A #storm brewing in #Capitol #Reef on a dirt #road - a sign warned that if there was a hint of #rain in the air this road was a no go due to flash #flood risk. I didn't test the sign maker's knowledge.
  • The roads of #Utah are unreal. This was shot in #Capitol #Reef - The iron deposits in the #sandstone make this place look more like Mars than Earth. #roadtrip #road #horizon #street
  • #Rodeo just outside of #Pagosa Springs on Mill Creek Road. Three of sixteen girls setting up the figure 8... There was only one minor scrape during the performance.
  • Voodoo over the Hoodoos. A #double #rainbow over #Bryce #Canyon hoodoos and #ponderosa pine trees. @natgeo
