OpEd titled “The City’s Three NYCHA Plans That Will Privatize Public Housing” for East New York News
Today, public housing in our city, and in the country really, is at a crossroads. Buildings are dilapidated, unsafe and unhealthy to the tune of $40 billion, meanwhile disinvestment has also led to an operating budget deficit. The City has put forth three plans they say will solve these coinciding crises and put NYCHA on a path towards a brighter future. I think these plans will fundamentally change public housing as we know it, and put an important public institution and its tenants in jeopardy going forward.
The three plans are titled NextGeneration NYCHA, NYCHA 2.0, and A Blueprint for Change.
