Re: 10 things NYC should do now that Amazon HQ2 deal is over

Good! Out with the zeroes and in with the heroes!

I tend to oscillate between the harsh notion of a city purging its poorest and weakest to ensure the maximum financial viability for a municipal government, and the notion of a strong social welfare state to ensure that people can remain comfortable in their communities. The problem with New York's current housing regime is that if you're low income, leaving generally doesn't mean going to suburbs, but leaving the metro area entirely for somewhere generally not as nice or ideal. I'd cringe if I had to leave New York because my family and hobbies are here.
