destroying public housing to "save" it - privatizing the projects, it's all good til the rent increases and the evictions sure to follow

Shocker: more government programs are the solution to failed government programs.

So they gave it a facelift. What does the inside look like? Are they keeping up with maintenance and conducting regular inspections?

Subsidized housing within existing real estate in safe neighborhoods with good schools is vital. There are many ways to pay for it if people get creative & churches help out. IMO Reagan economics is responsible for a lot of our infrastructure collapse. Give people a garden 🌳🌺🪴

If they really refurbished it, that means they about to move all the poor people out...

10 years later it will be luxury accomodations and rich white people in a hipster bar will be treating it as an amusing trivia question like "did you know this used to be a notorious housing project"
