I can't believe I missed this one in the summer.
This is an outstanding essay on the politics of "social housing" on New York's Upper West Side.
A truly comprehensive summary of how "poverty" pays.
“This whole affordable-housing thing is a hoax. It’s not affordable to
the taxpayer. It’s not affordable to the poor. The only people who are
making out on it are doing so at the taxpayer’s expense.”
Read it all.
