Look out New York City (and 6 other US cities)! The United Nations to coming to check out your affordable housing situation and ensure that it does not violate human rights!

According to the New York Times:

The United Nations has assigned an official, “a special rapporteur on the right to adequate housing,” to check the city’s affordable housing. The rapporteur, Raquel Rolnik, is to tour the city for the next three days with housing advocates and city officials to “hear the voices of those who are suffering on the ground,” she said.

Great to hear that the UN is spending their money wisely. Here is a clip…

Here are some pictures of housing in other parts of the world…

What about Mumbai?

Is the US the best? I haven’t a clue. But, I would think that there are much worse places that the UN should be investigating prior to checking on the US’s affordable housing.
