NYC Approves Apartment Building With Separate Entrance for Poor People

It would be difficult to come with a more on-the-nose metaphor for New York City’s income inequality problem than the new high-rise apartment building coming to 40 Riverside Boulevard, which will feature separate doors for regular, wealthy humans and whatever you call the scum that rents affordable housing.

Extell Development Company, the firm behind the new building, announced its intentions to segregate the rich and poor to much outrage last year. Fifty-five of the luxury complex’s 219 units would be marked for low-income renters—netting some valuable tax breaks for Extell—with the caveat that the less fortunate tenants would stick to their own entrance.

The city’s Department of Housing Preservation and Development approved Extell’s Inclusionary Housing Program application for the 33-story tower this week, the New York Post reports. The status grants Extell the aforementioned tax breaks and the right to construct a larger building than would ordinarily be allowed. According to the Daily Mail, affordable housing tenants will enter through a door situated on a “back alley.”

Any of the unwashed folk who complain about such a convenient arrangement, of course, are just being ungrateful. As the Mail points out, fellow poor-door developer David Von Spreckelsen explained as much last year:

"No one ever said that the goal was full integration of these populations," said David Von Spreckelsen, senior vice president at Toll Brothers. "So now you have politicians talking about that, saying how horrible those back doors are. I think it’s unfair to expect very high-income homeowners who paid a fortune to live in their building to have to be in the same boat as low-income renters, who are very fortunate to live in a new building in a great neighborhood."

In these economically fraught times, it’s easy to forget that the super rich earned their right to never see you, hear you, smell you, or consider your pitiful existence. Expecting them to share an entrance would be unfair.

'Peace, Propaganda and the Promised Land'

  • Noam Chomsky: When Israel, in the occupied territories now, claim that they have to defend themselves, they are defending themselves in the sense that any military occupier has to defend itself against the population that they’re crushing. You’re not defending yourself when you’re militarily occupying someone else’s land. It’s not defence. Call it what you like, it’s not defense.
  • Arik Ascherman: Yes, Israelis are being shot and killed and so yes, Israel has real defence needs. At the same time, defence in Israel has become this mantra and once people hear the word ‘defence’ they stop thinking. And so all too often, anything can be called ‘defence’ and then justified.
  • Robert Jensen: Calling Palestinian actions ‘attacks’ and Israeli actions ‘retaliation’ is meaningful. ‘Retaliation’ suggests a defensive stance in response to violence initiated by someone else. In other words, Palestinian violence, like suicide bombings, is seen as aggression and thus as the cause and origin of the conflicts.
  • Michael Lerner: When you have a population that is being occupied, when their fundamental human rights are being systematically denied, when they’re not allowed to move from city to city or from place to place, without a huge amount of harassment. When they’re being subject to torture. When people are essentially in desperate conditions. It’s not a surprise that they are going to be very very very angry.

In a capitalist society, money is how we get our shit together. You can be a failure as a human being, but if you have money, if you make money, you haven’t failed. Capital conceals real failure in the same way that fame (consensus) hides mediocrity. A costume for spiritual poverty. Hence the whole project of celebrity, which forfeits the responsibility of living ethically. You answer to no one when you have the money to pay for unaccountability/irresponsibility. That’s really what wealth buys you. Fame exteriorizes to such an excessive degree that you are freed from looking inside (at yourself). The political mechanics become irrelevant.

Dana Ward in The Crisis of Infinite Worlds:

"When David said ‘Money is a negative Eucharist’ I can tell you that he wasn’t really guessing. When people say ‘You need to get serious about your life now’ they’re not fucking with you. In the end though all they mean by that is money."

Money is permission to fuck with but not be fucked with. It does away with the chain of causation.
