Supporting the Clinton Commons Affordable Housing Development

RSS Feed

On January 26, 2011, I submitted testimony to the New York City Planning Commission in support of the proposed Clinton Commons development on West 52nd Street.  I applaud Manhattan Community Board 4's strong advocacy during the review process which compelled the developers to identify and adopt a mechanism that will preserve the development's affordability in the long-term.  Clinton Commons' progressive cooperative housing structure will open the door to home ownership for countless generations of moderate and middle-income New Yorkers for whom there are currently few adequate housing options, and will help keep Clinton/Hell's Kitchen a diverse, dynamic and vibrant neighborhood.
