Councilman Antonio Reynoso and community leaders: Brooklyn Legal Services Corporation A, Southside United HDFC-Los Sures, East Brooklyn Congregations, Metro IAF, and St. Nicks Alliance’s Community Preservation called attention to the lack of affordable senior housing in North Brooklyn. Reynoso suggests that unused NYCHA lots could be places to build such homes.

“We can spend $1.1 billion to give money to hotels to house people. We can spend half of that to actually build housing that we can move people into,” said Reynoso.
