As CNNMoney points out, the new ban will not affect current housing stock, but only future developments. No wrecking balls to the poor doors we've already got. Sorry.
In one recently developed building with a poor door, nearly 90,000 people applied for 55 affordable units on the Upper West Side, despite the fact that "poor door" tenants would not have access to the building's other amenities, including a gym, pool, and bowling alley. Because really, nothing says class war like a bowling alley. But with affordable housing drying up faster than a California lake, it comes as no surprise so many people want in.
Except now, the guys living in the penthouse will have to go bowling with the guys in the basement. How unbecoming.
