June 14, 2020 — Democratic New York State Senator Brad Hoylman recently tweeted about how upset he is that realtors discriminate on Long Island. But Census Tract 63 in Manhattan, where he lives, has 6330 residents, 66 of whom are black or about 1%. You can look that up here:
I wonder how many black people live in Hoylman’s exclusive Fifth Avenue Co-op building, which has a doorman.
While Hoylman lives the life of the rich and shameless on Fifth Ave., he sells out the folks in NYCHA public housing. Fight For NYCHA (FFN) reminded everyone recently that Brad Hoylman backed up Mayor De Blasio’s corrupt, secretive NYCHA Working Group involved in the demolition of two apartment buildings in the Fulton Houses which also had a privatization scheme attached to it. When FFN took one picture of those attending the NYCHA Working Group (capturing Hoylman among others) they were asked to leave and almost had their phones confiscated.
Why? What’s the big secret?
When @BilldeBlasio wanted to #sellout #FultonHouses to #RAD Landlords in a scheme that involved demolition of two public housing apartments, @bradhoylman was there to back-up @NYCMayor‘s corrupt @NYCHA Working Group. #earlyvotingstartstoday
FFN had included pictures – and zoomed in on key sections – as evidence of Hoylman being complicit in the Mayor’s scheme to privatize NYCHA public housing units:
Community Control of Land Use New York (CCLUNY) tweeted the following:
Who is at @NYCMayor Secret Nycha Working Group that is ready to sell public housing to 70/30 MIH luxury developers? @FightForNYCHA was asked to leave because we took ONE PHOTO. This secret meeting violates the Open Meetings Law…1/3 @monicamoralestv @joeanuta @hdiprinzio @WBAI
CCLUNY further tweeted that the chair of Manhattan Board 4, Joe R., attempted to take their phones away from them presumably to delete the photo they had taken showing Hoylman and others in attendance, but that didn’t happen.
