NYCHA mulls placing ads on residential buildings

The New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) says it's considering raking in much-needed money by selling ad space on the sides of its residential buildings.

BROOKLYN - The New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA) says it's considering raking in much-needed money by selling ad space on the sides of its residential buildings.

Many public housing residents say they're worried about the kinds of advertisements that could end up outside of their homes. In Sheepshead Bay, some say they're against the idea because it would make many rundown buildings looks even worse.

NYCHA says that residents would have a say in the design and execution of the ad program if it's approved. It also says that ads for unhealthy products, including cigarettes and alcohol, would not be allowed.
