Yeah, I consider myself a huge supporter of mixed income housing and even I don't see the point in making a huge fuss over a slightly around the corner entrance. Particularly with some of the buildings' layouts I've seen. It's not like they are going through the "poor door"; its just not a full service staffed door… » 10/24/14 1:30pm Friday 1:30pm
