Some things never change
This cartoon appeared in a magazine in 1947 at the height of the post-WW2 housing boom when demand was high and affordable housing availability low. Replace "congressmen" with "council members," and you have NYC in 2007.

Thanks for the insight into the past. Interesting that lobbyists were big players back then too, and how the lobbyist in the cartoon is portrayed as a big, fat bastard.
Actually, taking a second look, they're all fat bastards. I guess this caroonist knew what he was doing.
The difference was this would be published in the 40s or 50s.
Today, that would never happen.
