    I figure those doors will get some pretty sick graffiti on them pretty soon
    I don0t know why rich people do this kind of stuff, they're only putting a target on their forehead.

    Well, they wanted to have an ignorant policy in place and that's what they got. I wouldn't live there if I am force to go through a back door like I am a piece of filth. I understand it's their company and their policy. However, if you had an issue with those who have a lesser income, then perhaps you should have stayed away from the real estate industry altogether. Times are hard and not many people are very rich nowadays.

    We used to have seats on the back of the bus...I don't think we're going that far again. This is just one place remember.

    Well the only reason the building is allowed to be built is because of the lower income units plus the building gets HUGE tax credits. So actually these developers are trying to rip off the tax payer of the city of New York.

    Some men aren't looking for anything logical, like money. They can't be bought, bullied, reasoned or negotiated with. Some men just want to watch the world burn.

    And the poor end up paying more in taxes. So it pretty much means this building is using poor people's money to discriminate against poor people.

    I read about that and I was so irritated of the fact that people actually want this door, this 'poor door' is not necessarily for poor people it is for people with affordable housing. This is a shame, the stratification in our society is ridiculous.

    You never know, history always repeating itself.

    I'm afraid the gap just keeps getting bigger...Best to just enjoy the ride though and not get caught up in emotional responses. Be in the moment I suppose.

    Come on, man. You know that won't work... who will cook for them and who will they point and laugh at then they drive their fancy cars? Who will wait on them and make them feel important?

    Seriously, these guys aren't even trying to hide their disdain for the non-wealthy people. I mean how can someone even propose this? I don't see how this will stand- this just REEKS of discrimination. I imagine some lawyer is going to make a name for himself fighting this.

    It's going to drive a wedge between people of different classes. Separation breeds hatred and though it seems below the surface I agree with the guy who said that this is going to make things really bad for the rich unless they hire lots of security guards and body guards to protect them. This is what happens when you treat your neighbors like trash — you'll have to live with the fear that they're planning to do something to you.

    Wow that sounds so absurd that it's unbelievable. I don't know how they even thought of considering this, since even though I know that they can be callous, surely they know well enough not to be blatant about it.

    It's bad enough have most of the poor world hate rich people, now you get to live with them.

    The divide between rich and poor is ever widening. Soon there will be supermarkets only for the rich and others that are designated solely for the poor. Or does that already exist?
    Separate "class doors" will certainly contribute to already existing tensions. I can't believe that things are moving into this direction. At the same time I wonder if the media are hyping it up to cause even more friction.

    Dude the supermarket thing exists. Some supermarkets are priced out of poor area and only operate in wealthier more affluent area. Whole Foods has been accused of this. It is the same way you only have Porche dealerships in certain areas. Economic segregation has existed for a very, very long time.

    I see both sides of this story, I'm by no means rich nor a snob but I have neighbors living above me (set of apartments) who bring so much trouble around here, we own our apartment as do many of our neighbors but the ones upstairs don't and they are on welfare with 5 kids (2 only live there as 3 were taken off them).. A separate building for those types would be appreciated universally amongst those who own an apartment here.
