Lets start with the basics: let all businesses operate.
expand NYCHA housing into midtown real estate office buildings. Also schools.

And who will pay for all that extra NYCHA? OP asked how to FILL the hole not dredge it.
Maybe UB-diaspora is not the right audience for this, but I loved a sign I saw the other day that said basically (paraphrasing from memory) “Nyc has ~250 billionaires. Since March their wealth has increased by ~60? billion. The city needs 10 billion to avoid shortfalls in public health and services. [then in smaller print] If you tax the rich, they will still be rich.” I was like.... true.
They. will. leave. before. you. get. a. cent.
This is excellent perspective. Put this in a comment to a relevant article in the New York Times and their staff will pick it up. i will try to do it also.
ITA. they have already minimized their taxes anyway, but if the city tries to take more, they will leave.
