Another example of cities and people of good will embracing change:
"Yes in my backyard."
The term YIMBY is all the buzz in New York City, but it is echoing beyond the city limits, too.
The idea has roots in the suburbs of Long Island, where relatively affluent towns have long protested the development of affordable housing.
The group known as YIMBY Long Island has helped build a quiet but powerful movement across Long Island supporting the development of new, low-cost residences and housing.
Their battle cry: “All communities on Long Island must provide a diversity of housing options for their residents and provide affordable housing.”
