Of course I would. The difference is I pay market rate rent. I'm not getting subsidized rent. You just said it yourself... Some people are comfortable living in generational poverty. Who was that poster living in the PJs driving a friggin' Tesla? Are you kidding me? Get yourself a decent apartment. You're living in the hood and driving a $70k car...

For all we know that $10 rent could be paid by a senior on a very fixed income.

If you are paying NYCHA $3,000 a month, you should be able to find some place else to live.

I'm seeing a lot of people act on this thread like NYCHA is a wonderful place to live nowadays. Maybe back in the '50s it was nice, but now 90% of all NYCHA developments are hellholes. Personally, if I had to live there and deal with that bullsh*t on a daily basis I would withhold rent too. NYCHA doesn't have to be pretty but it sure shouldn't be filled with lead and all that other crap.

NYCHA is one of the most inept and poorly run local government programs (and that's saying something!). With that said, there are contractual obligation that NYCHA agreed to when they are taking money from the taxpayer and the tenant - to keep these apartments in acceptable living conditions. I am glad the Feds are cracking down on NYCHA. The city should have done their own investigation though and not trying to obstruct.

Drug dependence is a disability.
