    Cuomo is talking about more or less market price not smth artificially inflated.

      subthread think that the destroyed homes were all beachfront?  Or all homes of the wealthy?  That's not at all what I saw in the coverage.

      Hint: flood damage extended way beyond the beaches.  

      Cuomo's idea is a good one.

      •  There are also a lot on Staten Island (0+ / 0-)

        that were in what sounded like a pretty low rent district (for NYC anyway.)
