I don't know why Robbins would even consider building more affordable apartments. Haven't they learned from the past about high rises, projects, and just crowded conditions. All they want to do is make a fast buck to misuse. Why not try a different approach by building nice size single family homes that's not all close to house next door, and give people some space outside their home as well as in. And hopefully attract a higher income class of people.

I feel the same why over crowd the village with housing projects why not bring retail shops and something that will bring in revenue to the people it would be nice to be able to shop in your own town and they should really bring pace to run from 139th to 115th that will be a hell of a lot better than walking:/
