    I just came across this article, all I can say is what is next? Their own lane on the road.

    "New York City is moving forward with a proposal that calls for a new high-rise apartment complex to feature separate doors for wealthy tenants and those living in the building’s affordable housing unit". Read more

    There's some positive at least: Thieves know exactly where all the loot is!

    I do have to wonder how much longer rich people are going to put on this facade though. It's going to lead to one of two things soon enough: a police state to rival the old soviet union or a bunch of heads rolling on the streets.

    You said it!

    The building owners are just making it harder for themselves to retain tenants. Marginalizing the "lesser" tenants by using a different door? Wrong move.

    Why don't we just clear everyone out of Canada and give it to all the rich people in the world to live in so they don't have to be hassled by us poor people? ;P What is this world coming to..

    Obviously because then the rich people would have to deal with all the bears and snow in Canada!

    What if someone tries to use the rich folks door while its open? "HEY! what do you think you're doing? Let me see your tax returns before you can go through"

    Probably they'll make so the poor floors aren't connected to the rich ones and there's no way to get to the poor floor using the rich door.

    I don't think it will be the rich people who will win out. After all, at that point the poor will outnumber them a million to one and there are five hundred million firearms in this nation. Even one of the super rich recently said that if things don't change soon we are screwed because we will never be able to get out of the cities before we get killed.

    This is absolutely awful, I am currently living in NYC and It is quite difficult to maintain an apartment by yourself. To marginalize theses future tenants by having an entrance through an alley is not acceptable.

    Good idea, Just give them what they need, but Canada maybe would be too small tho!

    It's a really sad day when we hear news like this, especially considering it's coming from the "liberal" NYC. It's almost to say that the poorer tenants are unworthy of walking through the same door as the richer tenants. To be honest I think it's a problem with society that we place so much value on how much wealth a person accumulates instead of what is truly in their hearts.

    What's next, seats on the back of the bus? Surely someone with a smidgen of common sense will step and point out the insanity of such a thing. If the want to have a separate class system then maybe the should get rid of democracy and have a ruler like a queen.
