You don't hear about the facades of NYCHA chipping off, like that 2 year old that got killed on the Upper West Side. Sorry but the reality is not everybody works for a high salary in NYC, and there are jobs that just don't command a high salary that need to employ people. Can't go to Long Island or Westchester - they're just as expensive as NYC for rent. Guess we'll just rely on a rotating staff of high school kids and elderly to ring me up for my Band-Aids and cough syrup. It won't happen. It would be nice if every adult in the US got a bachelors - it's not happening!
Even with a bachelor degree you are not guarantee a high salary in this city. The majority of jobs don't pay well. You have to be part of a union or working on Wall Street to make good $$$$ in NYC.

Many professional jobs rewuire masters or other advanced degrees. And/or union membership, licenses, or certification. With just bachelors degree enjoy some low paying secretarial job. Basically you are absolutely right.

Yes. Both. It was said by NY1, that 74% of people in NYCHA pay their rent.

The 10 most conservative (and liberal) cities in America - Salon.com

Liberal places are also centers of innovation. There is exactly 1 billionaire between all of those conservative cities and about 300 in the liberal column. There are about 290 Fortune 500 companies in the liberal column and only 8 in the conservative column. Innovation by liberals is the reason the United States is the most competitive country in the world. Without things like NYC, Silicon Valley, Hollywood & the arts, the United States would be an oversized trailer park and would have no global appeal.
Virginia Beach should probably be number one on that most conservative list.

Default Please help NYCHA issue

Sorry to post here but I'm hoping someone who can help will see this. I am certified to Wyckoff Gardens and desperately need to move. I'm about to get evicted and am having trouble finding an apt my family can afford. Who can I see to speed up this process? Anyone please tell me. If I have to go to 250 Broadway everyday and plead my case I will if it'll help.

Is NYCHA going to charge their tenants for electricity or water?
