: -- Too bad. What's a "very bad area" to you ? Many professionals with small children live in what you probably consider "bad areas" like the South Bronx, Harlem, and Bed-Stuy. Guess you think you are above everyone else. What entitlement do you have to live in a certain neighborhood ?

Living in a nice neighborhood for the good of the children does not give the person a sense of entitlement. There are plenty of mothers in Harlem and those areas who want to move out since they want a better life for their children with better schools. This is not entitlement, elitism or snobbery, just good common sense.


: Let's analysize just a bit of what you wrote:


: : I just received a huge rent increase (35%) that we really can't afford.
: --Maybe someone else can.

: : I just had a baby
: --Irrelevant.

: : I've put up with 2 winters of shoddy heat, leaky roofs and pipes, rotten wood floors, missing bathroom tiles, holes in the walls and ceilings
: --You chose to put up with quite a lot.

: :I would have to move to a very bad area in order to afford something, and as a professional with 2 small children, i'm not willing to do that.

: :Can I try to lower the rent increase in court
: --Yeah right. Pay lawyers big $$$, lose in court, and still get evicted and a judgement against yourself.

: : I don't know what to do.
: --Pay up ... or leave.
