NYC is broken and there's no will or even a desire to fix it's enormous problems. Everything is poorly managed or mismanaged. Things take longer, costs more and are just poorer in quality in every way. All the Democrats know to do is slather on more regulations, bans, restrictions, red tape, taxes, fees, tolls.

Are we that stupid of a society that we need these laws and bans to protect us from our selves? Perhaps we really do need to thin the herd when we get this stupid

It already has, you've only to look around certain projects to see plenty of Asians and others who aren't citizens and or are in "blended" households as proof. Oh and in case you missed the memo, Sam The Eagle and his HPD now includes illegals as eligible to win "affordable/low income" housing units.

Out on SI and elsewhere you have plenty of older Chinese and Latino/Hispanic in NYCHA senior citizen buildings. These people came here ages ago illegally and never became legal; but now are between broke or busted and thus need "low income" housing. Many do not get Social Security, or if they do it is "bare quarters" amounts which reflects their employment history of largely working off the books.

Kicker is many of those seniors *do own* property in China, Dominican Republic or elsewhere, but NYCHA doesn't count those assets.

When you say subsidized housing do you mean Projects or all section 8 and affordable housing ? I think the projects have too high a proportion of non working people to working people. Priority has to be given to working people for placement. Rents should decline in relation to income increasing in the household to promote work. Working eligible and public assitance tenants should pay more of their income. People on PA unless they are disabled should be told your further down on the waiting list, if you work you increase your odds. The ratio in a building to working to non working, disables, and aged have to distribute the units in such away that each development have a higher ratio of workers.

Opinion:
It is extremely rare to meet a tenant who treats his apartment as if it is was his personal property.
Multiply that by half a million and you have the projects. Imagine, just imagine if renters took care
of their apartments as they do their shiny brand new detailed and waxed automobiles sitting right
outside their project windows in their subsidized parking spots.......................

Also tenants of subsidized housing should be given report cards by the NYCHA to be provided on requests to any landlord who request it. The report should indicate if the tenants has complaints for being noisy, for late payments, for for smoking and other things. If they improve behaviors the report card reflects that. Poorer the grade, the more the rent is. Enough infractions they get evicted.

N.Y.C.H.A. is a Crash and Burn...........nuff said.
Still plenty of blacks around, plus more mexicans, and central americans are coming.

I predict more african, and middle easterners moving here too thanks to liberal lobbying.

Furthermore, the scale of the developments are not considered with cost of ongoing maintenance. It makes no sense to have entire high-rise buildings of people who are essentially paying at a discount to occupy, but must pay market rate for services. Smaller-scale buildings can be easier maintained. For example, any building over 6 stories in NYC must file a periodic facade inspection report or face penalties. Filing the report involves hiring an architect and thats just the beginning of it.

In NYC, subsidized housing is always playing a game of catch-up when it comes to maintenance because of this.

I just read an article today that stated NYCHA needs $3B to upgrade the life systems for every development.

Clearly this is not working.
Are you talking about sec 8? Sec 8 Landlords actually charge market rate, but the Sec 8 tenant is getting most of rent paid for. Tenant still has to pay their share. Landlord should have enough money to pay for maintenance. Unless tenant does not pay his share.
