From today’s New York Times:

Baltimore’s housing authority needs $860 million for crucial repairs, said the housing commissioner, Paul T. Graziano; it has demolished or shuttered 33 percent of its units since the 1990s and has another 600 “on the verge of failure,” with falling cabinets, unhinged doors and aging electrical systems.

Almost a billion dollars for repairs?  Does that include the city’s blighted homes that are under the housing commissioner’s control, or just large-scale public housing projects?
