Short for Cypress Hills Low-Income Housing Projects. An area bordered by Sutter Avenue, Fountain Avenue, Linden Boulevard, and Euclid Avenue within the East New York
section of Brooklyn
. This area is far from any actual cypress trees and is over a mile from an area known as Cypress Hills. It has always been a haven for low-lives and dirt bags, cripples, dwarfs, and sluts. Today, despite the best efforts of the NYC Housing Authority and its Police Department, there occurs, on average, a murder a month there.
Yo, me an' da Bro' went down to Cypress, and some niggaz done chased us, took our watches, and beat the shit outta us.
