And the poor.The rich live in tony condominium complexes that cost $1,200+ per square foot and apartment buildings that rent for $3,000 a month for a studio. The poor live in subsidized housing, with the gloomy exteriors to prove it. Beyond those extremes, there’s not much else in terms of housing stock.If there’s a reason for it, it’s that few

Experience
