Does anybody have an idea how many of the supposed 2,300 housing units not
being developed because of the injunction would house people coming out of
the shelters?  If it is at all representative of recent trends of
development on City-owned lots, I would be surprised if it were as many as a
few hundred, and certainly not enough to put any real dent in the record
6,252 homeless families in the City's shelter system.  The fact is that Rudy
doesn't want to spend the money on new housing for people leaving the
shelters because he knows it will only encourage thousands more families
living doubled-up or in terrible conditions to enter the shelter system.

The fact is that the injunction could have been lifted long ago if the Mayor
had any capacity for reason and compromise.  Many of those 2,300 units could
be in construction if there were a rational process whereby alternative
sites for affordable housing (and, in some cases, the gardens) were taken
into consideration as part of a rational land use plan, recognizing the need
to both preserve open space and build more affordable housing.

Friends,

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:


"COALITION FOR THE HOMELESS

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

STATEMENT of the 
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
technology,
community commitment and manpower exist to deliver significant numbers of
newly
constructed homes.  What has been lacking over the past few years is the
fiscal commitment
by the local government. "
