    Doing some research on NY

    I was wondering if anyone could point me to some articles that explain the policy/methodology/logic or lack thereof, being used by New York City and their bucking of the trend by other US cities of tearing down their large, subsidized-housing towers.

    Thanks

    The local community advocates of said public housing are so vocal and politically powerful that not even Michael Bloomberg would mess with them.
