Not everyone who comes here is an evil landlord. The home we purchased had been abandoned for nearly a decade. We came in, put our heart and soul into it and now call it home. I don’t think we displaced anyone and as of today there are still three abandoned homes on my block and whoever wants to come in and make affordable housing should.
I would think that anyone would be glad that these homes are being populated once again and by a mix of tenants, low income, middle and higher. That’s a healthy mix and next what is needed is actual home ownership. So the complaining belongs to the decision makers who give these properties to investors who don’t live in in Newburgh and don’t care about who they put in their units and what happens to them and in them. The decision makers should instead find a way to make low income Newburghers actual homeowners.
PS we don’t have horns.
