Young LIers call for affordable housing
A group of young Long Island residents gathered in front of the Huntington Town Hall Saturday to rally behind a proposed affordable housing development.
Harry Burger, of Huntington Station, says he and other young professionals want to be independent and have the ability to live on Long island, but for now they cannot afford it.
"I'm 26 and I am still living with my parents, as embarrassing as that is," Burger says.
They're supporting the proposed Avalon Bay Development, which would include homes for both rent and sale. In addition, 25 percent of the development would be affordable housing.
