The Village Voice calls bullshit on the city's plan to include 2,300 affordable housing units in the infamous waterfront rezoning plan, a bone being thrown to worried 'Burg/Greenpoint residents who are already being chased out by high rents. The Voice points to a March 4th envorinmental impact statement put out by the city's own planning department that notes "not all of the potentially displaced population are expected to be able to rent these units." and a "significant adverse impact" remains. Better start packing up those fond flashbacks of $300 rents and families huddled around dinner tables.
