    Affordable housing - a type of housing that accomodates the mentally ill, the very poor, and the criminal - tends to oftentimes be concentrated in specific urban areas. That's why you often a see a glut of affordable housing highrises and townhouses as well as mental health facilities in the same town and a complete absence of them in most others. Most towns' and cities mayors manage to rebuff attempts to build such affordable housing, but the few places that don't get inundated with it. Is it a wonder then, after all such building occurs, that the middle class families move out and the neighborhood becomes a haven of poverty, crime, and drugs?
