The New York City Housing Authority is in the news a lot these days. Many residents were hit hard by the effects of Hurricane Sandy, and now residents say City administrators are trying to make deals to sell off parking lots to luxury housing developers, first by raising parking prices to squeeze residents out of using them, making selling them off easier. Hundreds of residents squeezed onto the steps of City Hall to say, in an election year, they are not having it. WBAI's Rebecca Myles was there and files this story
