Mayor Bill de Blasio's finalized housing plan is due May 1, and affordable housing advocates are putting on the pressure. Real Affordability for All, a collection of about 50 tenants groups, is wielding a report that shows a growing need for housing aimed at families of four making less than $41,000 a year. If the mayor agrees to add more housing for the city's poorest residents, it would require more subsidies from the city and likely impede his goal of creating 200,000 new units. [WSJ; perviously]
