New York City will allow a developer to build a separate entrance ("poor door") and elevator for tenants in lower-income units of a new rental property. What do you think?

Is there a real difference between separate entrances, and separate addresses? The point is to develop more affordable housing. If someone's feelings are hurt by use of a second entrance, there's no one holding a gun to their head... rent elsewhere.

Good points, John. The main stated intent of the incentives is to provide affordable housing at that location, which this does.

The providing of the separate entrance is not with which I have the issue; the coined term "Poor Door" is what I find to be disturbing. They could have easily called it the "Back Door" or the "Rear Door" and it would not be as entirely frowned upon as it is now.

The term "poor door" term came from the critics, not the developer.

Where does it say in the world that everyone has to have the exact same thing.....is a small compact car a "poor car"? With creating a project with low income and income on the same site all citizens have an opportunity to live at the same address. Heck lets just raise the minimum wage so we don't have to build low income housing.......we are still America where any person can create their own success. Lets keep it that way!
