Mayor de Blasio's 10-year affordable housing plan has been applauded by almost everyone, but archicritic Justin Davidson thinks that seeing the plan executed in full is little more than wishful thinking. One point he makes: "New York has a million poor households that compete for the roughly 425,000 apartments that they can afford. Even if all of the 80,000 new subsidized apartments went to that slice of the population, that still wouldn't come close to making the city a less expensive place to live." [NYM; previously]
