“Affordable Housing” and “Diversity” are big chanting points of blue-state liberals.
Provided that the affordable housing, and the diverse people who pay for it, aren’t actually anywhere near you.
Upper West Side Manhattanites recoil at people living in RVs among them:
Farther uptown, on Central Park West — where the neighborhood’s most expensive rental, a town house with a pool, fetches a cool $75,000 a month — stands a 19-foot, 1975 Dodge Sportsman with gold rims and two cameras affixed to its exterior.
“It looks like it would fit more in the mountains of West Virginia than on the Upper West Side,” said area resident Ron Hoffman.
The Dodge owner, who only gave his name as Robert, refused to answer any questions.
Neighbors are puzzled by the RV’s windows, which are covered by gold curtains.
“He once told me he just uses it to store things — but if that’s the case, why would you have everything blacked out so you can’t see the person inside!” said longtime resident Bill Smith.
“I don’t think it should be here,” added Mario Parisi, 86. “We’re all waiting to park. Sitting there all the time is not a good idea — it’s a monster.”
Diversity is a wonderful thing.
Just not near us.
