Apart block: Manhattan luxury tower to have separate rich/poor entrances

20.08.2013 03:47

A New York City developer has broken ground on a midtown luxury tower that reportedly plans to separate potential tenants based on their income, going so far as to segregate occupants via drastically different entrances and exits.

Income discrimination! Race, religion, sex now we have to add income. I'd give him the tax break then all the low income should sue for discrimination and take the money he thought he'd keep.

Great idea. Now a robber won't have to decide who to rob and who to ignore. He will just need to lurk in the shadows next to the "rich people entrance".

  


An d the sexual predators will take the "Poor Person" entrance.

O f course, they're only putting low income units, which, despite the smaller number will be tiny compared to the expensive ones I'm sure, for a tax write off. They want rich money, and poor people tax writeoffs. Watch, they'll force the poor out to raise the price and renovate.

This kind of stuff makes me be ashamed to be American. If this cruel type of mind set thinks that it will be here forever, it has another thing coming. This is one company vs thousands if not millions who think this is wrong. The world is changing and if these one per-centers don't understand that, they will get over ran.

I'm sorry author from the Post, but I do not watch the show Downton Abbey.

I could not care about this double entrance. It represents to me a distinction the rich make a point to express throughout their day. That type of person does not interest me. They are a problem which should not be given attention.

I would love to see all the builders designated for this project to put their tools down and refuse to build it. They could say they will find others who would be willing to build it. This may be true but if they had real convictions they too would put their tools down and walk away. There are ways to stop this tearing at the fabric of our society. Are there individuals ready for the fight?

Why is it that some people think only the "poor" have rights? The outrage here is from Marxists and we all know what a wonderful system they had with the USSR, so wonderful. *sarcasm*

  


Well get ready because your go old US of A going to experience a system just like it called Fascism then you can whine about then when they stick you in a detention camp.

Haha, this is why I quit New York years ago. It's a city that tries too hard to be what it is. What it really is, is a failure.

Thought segregation was not legal in the US. Thata what they r doing.

The Talmud allows this and much more.

New York City is the center of fascism. That's what America is becoming, a fascist state. Some people are so stupid, they believe the "neocons" saying how Obama is a socialist or a communist, when it's so far from the truth. Take Obama care, so many label it a socialist policy. But it isn't national healthcare. It's a mandate that says American citizens must buy a private healthcare policy, or be taxed. That's not socialist by any means. NYC is the heart and soul of all evil in America. From it's executive branch goon squad "with it's illegal stop & frisk" to it's on the take cop shops exposed by Frank Serpico.

Segregation is taking place everywhere people have a choice. London is now only 44% white British as the natives flee the crime and violence caused by mass immigration.

  



The extremity here is doing this separation in the same building, in a place soo close, next to each other.

I'm not sure large income differences is the primary cause. This also happens in countries, like The Netherlands where income differences are much smaller. Too many savages around makes for the desire too live separately from them.

  


Th en, why do the separation on base of the income? Redicoulous.

The ordinary America people that have been spat on by the financial and political elites are in dire need of a revolution aimed at freeing themselves from financial, political and police oppression.

Fingerprinting of Black, Latino and poor people that live in the projects, racially profiling Muslims, Black and Latino by bloombergs private police force the NYPD. Now clear introduction of class based segragation in NY. What is happening in NY now is the same apartheid that existed in the southern states.
