commented on New Manhattan High-Rise Will Have a Separate Entrance for Poor People
I live in NYC and make about 40,000 a year. There is absolutely no way that I could afford to live in one of the "affordable" units.
The only way that I can afford to live here at all is that I lucked into a rent stabilized apartment in a "cheap" neighbourhood. And even that is about to expire, because the rent stabilization board (Bloombërg cronies) hasn't upped the stabilization limit in almost 10 years.
I won't be sad to leave this hellhole, but I'm lucky enough to have the economic means to be able to leave the city, so many people here aren't so lucky.

I doubt that's the reasoning. I'm sure being the VP of communication at Seattle U is a pretty decently paying job, but since ex-administration loyalists get plum "think tank" jobs where they don't really have to do anything, I sorta doubt he wrote a book shitting on his former boss simply to get a job.
