A number of small businesses and individuals around Liberty city and its outskirts have gone bankrupt with more than a fair share of suicides. The number of closed signs and foreclosures has also gone up. Is this a recession for the neighborhood? or is someone targetting the primarily black neighborhood for a reason? Little news has been made of the recent uptick in suicides; the city, generally, does not tend to care for the plight of specific subsets of the population.
