Rudy Giuliani Fibbed Again - Gardens do not displace homeless

  • Subject: [cg] Rudy Giuliani Fibbed Again - Gardens do not displace homeless

If you listened to the radio in NYC today, read the Post, "What's Better,
homes or gardens? Rudy: Homeless shut out by community green thumbs" ( page
4)by Angela E. Allen and David Seifman  or the NY Daily News: "Rudy Dig at
city gardeners: Says land should be given back to help house homeless" by
Michael Blood ( page 29) you know of  Mr. Giuliani's smear of all community
gardeners and gardens. 

Rather than blowing off steam about Mr. Giuliani's attempt at
disinformation, I will share with you the contents of a Fax that I just
received from Patrick Markee of NYC's Coalition for the Homeless. The
Coalition of the Homeless is in the forefront in the advocacy of the
Homeless in this NYC.

Press Release:


89 Chambers Street - 3rd Floor
New York, N.Y. 10007
(212) 964-5900
Fax: 212-964-1303

Coalition for the Homeless 
Regarding Mayor Giuliani's August 1st Remarks About the 
Record Number of Homeless Families in New York City Shelters

The coalition for the Homeless objects,  in the strongest terms, to Mayor
Giuliani's recent
statements implying that the construction of affordable housing in New York
City must come at
the expense of community gardens.  Over the past many years, the non-profit
sector of the
city has developed myriad models of cost-effective, mixed-income housing.
Given that the City
has other parcels of land at its disposal,  it is simply not necessary  to
encroach on the precious
few remaining green spaces for new development of affordable housing.  The
community commitment and manpower exist to deliver significant numbers of
constructed homes.  What has been lacking over the past few years is the
fiscal commitment
by the local government. "
