In my opinion, the biggest issues facing the Manhattan housing market are (select up to three): *

The City often finances infrastructure (streets, sewers, etc.) for new housing developments and then assesses the costs back to the properties within the development. This is called a special benefit district. It allows the developer to lower the initial purchase price of lots and homes because the infrastructure costs are paid over time (usually 20 years). However, homes in special benefit districts typically have higher property tax bills because the assessments are billed with property tax statements.
Do you think the City should continue to allow special benefit districts to help finance housing developments?
