NYC’s blindspot: “Their reluctance to enforce a law passed by Congress and repeatedly upheld by the courts reflects a larger political reality. Attempts to create integrated neighborhoods have foundered in the face of opposition from homeowners.” (2015)

There’s almost no scenario where property values suddenly soar in NYC without substantial public investment in police, transit, good schools, parks, etc. It’s only fair for lucky folks like me and to kick in a little more.

We refer to homeowners like as “Hellersteins.” The Hellersteins were undertaxed homeowners on LI who, in 1975, famously challenged the legality of the property tax system, despite benefiting from its inequities. NYC needs more Hellersteins. Bravo CM Lander.

You can pay $10,600 in property taxes on a $370,000 building in the North Bronx. Or... Just $1000 more in property taxes on a $2.9 million townhouse in Park Slope.

There are well over 30,000 people in Glendale. And we are talking about just 200 homeless individuals.

Actually, , what you do in your district must fit with the culture of NYC. This is a homeless crisis + *everyone* must do their fair share. From the residents of the UWS, to the condo owners on billionaires’ row, and to the folks in Glendale It’s a community affair

., translated: "Why would I make it blatantly obvious that... ... I've no real plan to house the homeless since I really don't care about anyone other than middle-class homeowners + ... I can't answer the question of why that doesn't make me a classist & racist?"
