President Trump’s party planner-turned-housing official announced over the weekend that she will experience how the other half lives by moving into New York City Housing Authority complexes for a month.
Lynne Patton, a U.S. Housing and Urban Development regional director, told radio host John Catsimatidis that she’s vacating her ritzy Trump Tower apartment to live in the city’s crumbling public housing system.
“I am moving into NYCHA tomorrow, actually,” she said in a segment that aired Sunday. “I’m staying at Patterson Houses in the Bronx for a week. And after that I think I’m going to go to Douglass Houses” in Manhattan.
Patton, who underwent a background check in order to move into NYCHA, had planned to move to there in January but was deterred by the government shutdown.
She said she plans to spend one week each at four developments.
