    • Apparently, some people who develop stuff for a living disagree: When NYCHA bid out for 50/50 developments at locations in Brooklyn and Manhattan last year, they received several bids–mostly from for-profit companies.

      • so build them where they are wanted! Because
        EAST HARLEM OR ANY OTHER HARD WORKING COMMUNITY DO NOT NEED YOUR LUXURY PROFIT BLEEDING SUN BLOCKING BUILDINGS, FILLED WITH MORE “ELITES” WHO WALK OVER THE HOMELESS. THEY CAN BE BUILT, THE PROBLEM IS NOBODY WANTS TO BUILD FOR THE RIGHT REASONS! DIG INTO HISTORY AND TELL ME WHY ARE DETERMINED TO TEAR MORE FAMILIES OF COLOR DOWN? WHAT BENEFITS ARE YOU GUARANTEEING THESE LONG TIME RESIDENTS? THESE LOWER INCOME FAMILIES WHO DO NOT MAKE THIS PRICE CAP? STOP THE ILLEGAL LAND GRABS NOW. WHY IS THIS NECESSARY LAND-“LORDS” WHO ARE NOT FROM OUR COMMUNITIES? TO FILL YOUR GREEDY POCKETS? YOU DOD NOT HIRE ANYONE WHO LOOKS LIKE ME AND MY COMMUNITY, YET YOU SEND MONEY TO YOUR FAMILY AND NEVER CONTRIBUTE BACK INTO OUR COMMUNITIES.. YEA OK. SO YEA IT WOULD BE IMPOSSIBLE IF PROFIT ARE THE SOLE INTENTION. NO GOOD INTENTIONS ARE BEING DONE IN THIS FALSE DATA DRIVEN PROPOSAL.
        GET THE ENVIRONMENTAL IMPACT TRUTHS AND YOU WILL UNDERSTAND HOW EXPENSIVE THIS MOVE AGAINST LOW INCOME/ DISABLED/ ELDERS OF HISTORICAL CULTURES WITHIN HARLEM, WILL BECOME FOR FUTURE GENERATIONS. THIS IMPACT WILL BE THE DETERIORATING FACTOR AND THE BEGINNING, OF ERASING THE MOST SACRED AESTHETIC & CULTURAL VALUES THAT MAKE NEW YORK CITY WHAT IT IS. WHY DO YOU BUILD FOR THE WEALTHY AND NOT FOR THE POOR MR. DEBLASIO? BACKWARD SOCIETIES FORGET THEIR HUMANITY. PLEASE DO NOT ALLOW THIS TO HAPPEN TO A GREAT CITY AND PLACE LIKE HARLEM! STOP #GENTRIFICATION OF HARLEM, BROOKLYN AND BRONX..”BECAUSE I CARE ABOUT THE PEOPLE WHO ARE ALREADY HERE!” (You can use that last line for your run in November because we will be watching this “proposal” closely. Thank you, a very concerned resident/activist.
