Excerpt from Housing Comes of AgeThe Director General and Council of New Netherland to All, who shall see these presents or hear them read, Greeting! Know ye, that to prevent the misfortune of conflagrations, the roofs of reeds, the wooden and plastered chimneys have long ago been condemned but nevertheless these orders are obstinately and carelessly neglected by many of the inhabitants. The said Director General and Council have decided it to be necessary, not only to renew their former ordinances, but also to amplify the same and to increase the fines. The Records of New Amsterdam New York City, 13 October1937: The mayor then recounted how the (slum) buildings had been torn down and model houses had been built (by his administration) upon the site with sunshine in all the rooms and playgrounds for children. New York Herald Tribune reporting Republican Candidate La Guardias Speech in Mayoralty Campaign. To the eradication of the slums and the enlargement of the housing program for the city at the lowest possible rentals I pledge myself with all the sincerity and enthusiasm of my heart. Brooklyn Eagle reporting Democratic Candidate Mahoneys Speech in Mayoralty Campaign. Here are the limits of a long journey from the anarchy of license to the order of enlightened society.
