Getting Closer on Housing

These Cities Built Affordable Housing That’s Also Appealing. Can NYC? http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2014/03/new-model-for-nyc-affordable-housing.html

If regulations cause the cost of construction to skyrocket and build times to slow, why not pare them back rather than unnecessarily socializing the housing market?

This whole architectural attractiveness business is nonsense too.  Most of these examples have disorienting,  expensive,  post modern features that only appeal to architects. And they all look like terrible neighbors to boot.  Look at d the dense swaths of Brooklyn and Queens as well as Manhattan s white stones to see how to build affordably.
