Gary Garrison recently said in a Dramatists Guild meeting here in Chicago that the price of real estate is killing so many thing in NYC.

A big real estate developer said before the New York City Council in around 1978 that the grand plan for Manhattan was to make the entire island a place where no one making less that $40,000 could live there. Seems as if it is becoming true. Or as Woody Allen once said, "Manhattan will eventually become restaurant owners eating at other restaurant owner's restaurants."

I did an inflation adjustment search relating to the City Council president's remarks.

What cost $40,000 in 1978 would cost $130,094.73 in 2009.

Looks as if their grand design is working!

Although, will anyone want to live there with the bedbugs?!

Out of curiosity, I also did a search for the guy who spoke the words to see where he is today, if even alive. He is currently under indictment.


best,
