Mayor de Blasio’s attempts to deal with the housing issue in the city has been widely criticized. Many communities have actively protested against his proposed rezoning plans.

In an interview on the Brian Lehrer radio show last week the Mayor said, “Gentrification is a complicated issue and a double edged sword. Of course it means something good is happening on one level and it often leads to strengthening of neighborhoods…but it also can lead to the displacement of neighborhood residents.”
