New Affordable Housing Idea Debuts in Park Slope

October 17th, 2008 · 1 Comment

Okay, it’s a Sukkot tent, and we were having some fun with the headline, but the way things have been going, one does wonder if tent living is going to be the wave of the future. In any case, correspondent Max Casey, who’s got a nose for this kind of thing, writes:

Someone set up a sukkot tent on Garfield between 6th and 7th. There’s a sign on it inviting people to go on the lawn and look inside it, but that you have to keep it clean. Have no idea whether the people who set it up are eating meals inside it.

It’s totally untrue that it’s part of a new urban affordable housing plan that John McCain will unveil next week to try to sway wavering moderate-income city residents.

    What you are calling a “Sukkot tent” is actually called a Sukkah


    never, never have heard it called a sukkot tent.
