Mayor de Blasio Favors Food Stamp Skyscrapers Print E-mail

New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio is calling for local real estate developers to build massive skyscrapers to house over 200,000 welfare recipients. They can enjoy living in penthouse accommodations while still getting their food stamps. 

The New York Daily News reports that, "Get ready for even taller skyscrapers and more densely packed neighborhoods. Mayor de Blasio told a closed-door meeting of real estate barons Wednesday that he has no “hangup” about allowing them to supersize their developments if it means creating more affordable housing."

Mayor de Blasio is quoted as saying that, “As we get to know each other . . . I hope people hear me loud and clear that the only way I can achieve my goals is if we are building and building aggressively.”

According to the New York Daily News, "De Blasio made his remarks to the executive board of the Real Estate Board of New York, known as REBNY, where he was warmly received. His office later released a recording of the mayor’s opening remarks to the group but not his comments during a question-and-answer session."

NYC will place no restrictions on how tall the food stamp skyscrapers can be built.
