No parking for public housing tenants

Dear Editor:


New York City Housing Authority tenants are screaming about a hike in parking fees, Here's some advice: shut up and chill out.

How do you qualify for public housing if you own a car? Anyone who can afford to buy and maintain a car can afford market-rate rents and should not be eligible for taxpayer-supported housing. Exceptions can be made for disabled tenants, but everyone else must use public transit, ride bikes or 
walk.

A car is an unnecessary luxury if the NYCHA is your landlord. What's next, chauffeur-driven limousines?

Sincerely,

Richard Reif
