STATEMENT FROM U.S. SECRETARY FOR HOUSING AND URBAN DEVELOPMENT ALPHONSO JACKSON ON THE PROPOSED SALE OF STARRETT CITY
"I am committed to preserving affordable housing in New York and across the nation. This transaction has the potential to threaten New York City's low-income housing market and those who need it. Starrett City is more than a piece of land -- it is a community. As Secretary of Housing and Urban Development, I will aggressively review this sale and give it close scrutiny. I am committed to working with New York's elected leaders to protect this valuable resource."
