The new character Sekou Bah lives with his mother and sister in Marcy Houses, a NYCHA public housing complex in Bedford-Stuyvesant, built in 1949. Though not as large as Queensbridge Houses which is the largest public housing in the United States with 3,142 units, Marcy Houses still takes up a sizeable swath, bordered by Flushing Avenue, Marcy Avenue, Nostrand Avenue and Marcy Avenue. Sekou meets his friend Saad and they drive to midtown to film videos for the website they’ve been running.
