    Sounds like Alicia Boyd will end up playing right into the hands of these supposed evil developers. My family is renters at risk of being screwed by these new projects and my Grandmother is living through that hell but her methods r dumb.

    Its important to not automatically assume that these fancy building owners (most of them frum yidden) are on our side, ultimately we are in the same boat as most of the veteran non Jewish residents of this neighborhood and risk being priced out.

    Well...

    She’s technically right.

    She is right!

    People living in those areas will be displaced, and it should not be up-zoned. it will make our community way to dense, and we will be living on top of each other!

    Better spread out, and not have all these yuppies on our heads!

    rental and purchase costs cannot be held back artificially.
    in every major city these costs have increased dramatically, the only major corrections would come during a depression or if there is over supply.
    We probably need to look at establishing a new neighborhood further away to give young families and others in need the opportunity to rent or purchase at reasonable prices.

    Open your eyes.

    The only ones that benefit are the rich landlords. Don’t get fooled by their promises. Parking will most definitely get worse and worse. And yes, you will be priced out.

    How?

    How?

    How does buidling large buildings effect the community living around in a bad way. In fact wouldnt it ease the rental market as there will be more units available. No one is being forced to sell.

    this is not a black/white issue

    this is not a black/white issue at all. it is developers vs. local residents issue. our black neighbors and the jewish community are in the same boat as far as this issue is concerned and any thinking person will realize that. there will always be race baiters such as this alicia boyd who will react as she did rather than use her head. stop letting your hate get the better of you, ma’am, and start thinking for a change…

    The fact that she’s right, and the fact that so many commenters agree, shows how wrong she is to race-bait.

    She should be hauled away in cuffs. She’s no better than the racial profiling policemen. In fact worse, because she doesn’t hide it.

    No need to artificially keep prices down,
    But we the veteran residents don’t have to change the zoning code for the developers, especially that these projects are for outside residents.
