4 thoughts on “Advocates Wary of Lawsuit Over City’s Affordable Housing Preferences

  1. If the court rules against this totally appropriate preference then the whole ‘affordable’ housing scheme in NYC will fall apart because middle-class neighborhoods will want no part of it.

  2. All New Yorkers pay for the tax breaks for this ‘affordable’ housing. We should get an equal crack at the lotteries.
    While we disagree with a lot of the ‘social engineering’ behind the mayor’s plan, we think that the argument behind this lawsuit is spot-on.

    • You have a point but the political reality is that without the local preference ‘affordable’ housing will soon become low income housing. No councilperson from a middle-class district is going to want any of this in their district.
