Hmmm...Queens West, Willets Point, Atlantic Yards, Downtown Brooklyn...they may never see "affordable housing" (which I think is defined differently for each project):
Is the Creation of Affordable Housing in Jeopardy?
The truth is that if 1 million units of housing weren't tied up in rent regulation, we wouldn't even be having this discussion. But it's a vital component of the tweeding process. How do you convince communities that eminent domain and overdevelopment are good if you don't include the "affordable housing" catch phrase?
