Two years ago, City Hall floated a plan that, for many, amounted to a worst case scenario for public housing tenants: demolish and rebuild parts of two New York City Housing Authority complexes in Chelsea.

The 2019 proposal for the Fulton and Chelsea-Elliott Houses was met with swift and intense backlash as tenants, housing advocates and local elected officials loudly decried the plan — which would have temporarily moved residents to a newly-built property on the grounds before demolition.

And then something odd happened: NYCHA and the mayor quietly changed course, shelved the plan and sat down to listen to residents.

Now, following months of Tuesday-night meetings of the “Chelsea Working Group” — made up of tenants, experts and the city housing officials — which were at times grueling and emotional, participants said, residents are helping steer how the complexes will be managed.
