There is some low income housing but not enough and the waiting list is long. One of the reasons, people double up, kids stay home with their parents and the homeless on the street proliferate. Housing was one of the things I mentioned as a reason for curtailing the illegal traffic. It was one of the things I mentioned about Middle Village/Maspeth and how it changed and was now way overcrowded. It was something I foresaw back in the 1980's when I was a renter and the reason I now own this house. I saw the rents going up faster than salary increases and knew by the time I retired, my SS would not be enough to cover it. The smartest thing I ever did in my life was heed my own predictions.
