    Mayor Bill de Blasio

    Maybe Mayor Bill de Blasio should’ve called it the “tale of three cities.” The city’s most forgotten group, according to City Record managing editor Steven Malanga in a New York Post editorial, is New York’s middle class.

    “From its arcane regulatory regime to the nosebleed taxes and fees it imposes on firms and individuals, City Hall drives up the cost of living and working here dramatically, making it harder for ordinary New Yorkers to get ahead,” Malanga wrote. [more]

    The Association for Neighborhood and Housing Development is vowing to fight for the Neighborhood Preservation Consultant Program, calling it “necessary.”

    The program, which was cut by 72 percent during the Bloomberg administration due to loss of federal funding, will get $580,000 in the city’s budget. The program’s goal — to identify properties with poor living conditions that put tenants and neighborhoods at risk — is similar to that of the Department of Housing Preservation and Development. HPD values the Neighborhood Preservation Consultant Program, because it fosters partnerships with tenant groups and leaders who often have a better sense of what’s going on in different communities.
