AUDIO: YWN Exclusive: Greenfield Explains Bold Plan To Build 2,000 New Housing Units in Boro Park
[AUDIO IN EXTENDED ARTICLE]
On his weekly radio program last night, Councilman David Greenfield laid out his support of a bold new housing plan proposed by R' Nachman Caller to build as many as 2,000 units of affordable housing in Borough Park. Councilman Greenfield addresses critical questions such as: Why weren't we able to build housing before? Why do we even need more housing in Boro Park? Where will all these new people park their cars? Greenfield also took live calls from listeners.
Greenfield explained clearly that he was not supporting either candidate for Assembly, but praised both Assemblyman Dov Hikind and R' Nachman Caller for their qualifications. Greenfield specifically pointed to the TAP bill that Assemblyman Hikind passed into law in 2011 and to R' Nachman's advocacy against casinos in the Catskills and his many years as prominent attorney and askan in our community.
YWN obtained an exclusive clip of the show, and it's worth a listen below. Greenfield hosts a popular radio show every Thursday night at 7pm on 620AM on the radio dial.
