BWAHAHAHAHAHA! But seriously, rich people are a bunch of dicks in general. I`ve only met a couple cool ones, and they grew up poor.

The entrance for the richest is the helicopter pad on the roof. And suddenly we`re up to three entrances. Splitters! ;)

So let me get this straight, this is a company that`s providing cheap housing for poor people. Why is this liberal publication complaining?

Of course I wonder what really prompted the tax credit, naturally they shouldn`t need it to do this sort of thing. Then there`s zoning which have been ridiculously abused by rich folks to protect the value of their homes. Which I say is abhorrently petty.

@McGovern1981 - That`s not how it works. The company who owns the apartments (Extell) will get tax credits and additional zoning rights for renting out the "low-income condos" at prices below market level.

Gerry1of1 has no problem with this.
I wish the section 8 housing next door was a little more segregated.

How come I couldn`t get a 2 bedroom in NY for 1100? I was paying 1000 in fracking Harlem. For just one room.

Low income my asp.

I`m with Swaywithme on this one. If I could get a 2 bedroom in NYC at $1,099 I`m all over it. I suspect that they will have trouble filling the higher end apartments, though.

The point is that it`s the same building with the same owner (collecting rent) and separate maintenance companies taking care of units & tenants. It`s raising eyebrows simply because it sounds just like this...





...and many believe it`s sending the wrong message.

Another example of how government programs change incentives.

Do we blame the business (building owners) for taking advantage of a government program or do we blame the government for incentivizing low-income offerings?

I am surprised those prices are considered low income. I would think low income rates would be half of that. Back when I made enough to qualify as low income based on the incomes they listed, I was paying a lot more than that for my place.

Ah, so a massive tax break is offered should the building include low income housing.They`re run by separate management companies so why wouldn`t you locate the entrance to be closer to the actual apartments? If you want the benefit of the door with the doorman, spend the 1.3 mill and get a fancy ass apartment on THAT side. Meanwhile, I`m going to be over here oogling the fact that you can get a 2 bedroom apartment in NEW YORK for 1,099...we were paying that with three roommates living together in our old place in the tricities.

Sorrryyy I don`t see a problem here.

Wait, I don`t understand. I`ve lived in NY by 125th street, and there are poor people there (even though they are paying 800/mnth for a room, which is a lot for any other part of the country).

But by 60th street or so, there are no poor people. Millionaires live there, how can any poor person be living there? Let alone in the same building. Those places on the UWS aren`t just a little pricey, they are fracking out of reach.

I wouldn`t want to live there. Those low income people would still be in the same building, separate entrance or not. No thanks.

Might as well separate the doors, give people a visual they can finally understand.

But is the building technically 2 separate places? It`s like 1 building having several businesses- all with their own entrances- this is one building with 2 different businesses.

I don`t know, I guess I didn`t read into it the way I was supposed to

Low-income... Condo... I believe those are mutually exclusive.
