Nearly a year ago, Mayor Bill de Blasio promised $500 million to build low-income housing for seniors. Now, the city is walking back that figure, which it says merely reflects an estimate of the total resources needed to fund the senior developments—only $100 million in direct city dollars will actually go toward building those apartments. The rest of the housing will be funded through subsidies, tax credits, and borrowing off of revenue expected from rent subsidized by the federal Section 8 program, according to a mayoral spokesperson.

The four-story building sits on a quiet street in Brooklyn, across from a church and an arts school. Eight apartments, front and back, two on each floor. The building, near the boundary of Clinton Hill and Bedford-Stuyvesant, has gone through incarnations as a rental, then a tenant-run cooperative, then a rental again. The most recent change brought a handful of new tenants, lured not by a landlord seeking to profit off the neighborhood’s gentrification, but by the promise of affordability.

A city starved for affordable housing needs groundbreaking ideas for salvation — like a new push to pair religious institutions that own land with developers who possess the financial, construction and management know-how to turn that real estate into new apartments at fair rents.

WASHINGTON — After the Affordable Care Act took effect in 2010, it created a review mechanism intended to prevent exorbitant increases in health insurance rates by shaming companies that sought them. But this summer, insurers are turning that process on its head, using it to highlight the reasons they are losing money under the health care law and their case for raising premiums in 2017.

New York City Comptroller Scott Stringer’s recent report that identified 1,130 vacant and city-owned lots is shocking, but all too familiar. Every empty lot represents a missed opportunity for the city to build more desperately needed affordable housing. What’s more, building on vacant sites means that no residents need to be displaced in the process, nor is there a need for the kind of complicated and controversial trade-offs that have mired Mayor Bill de Blasio’s proposed housing plan in a heated debate with housing advocates and community boards.
