For the Love of Money
Social separation is hitting an all time high in the Upper West Side of New York. A luxury apartment complex in the ritzier part of New York is in the midst of construction, and will contain a certain amount of more “affordable” units. But, here’s where things get sticky.
Plans for the building include a separate door for those who are in these lower-income homes, making it sure that they are not to be confused with the luxury home owners of the complex. What is most interesting about this though is that this is no the first time that this layout has occurred, making “the poor door” a growing trend in New York construction.
Why? For the money, of course! Companies get great subsidies and amazing tax-benefits to makes these more “equal” conditions, but still finding a way to make these places seem exclusive.
Much is to be said for this new(ish) layout, only time will tell where this will take us next.
- The man suspected of shooting and killing five people in a Washington mall is now in custody, officials said.
- Charlotte police have released video of Keith Lamont Scott's shooting and photos of a gun they say he had loaded.
- Kim Kardashian said she is voting for Hillary Clinton after being quoted saying she was "on the fence."
