HUD finds sex offenders in public housing: Gioia

A majority of public housing in Queens is located in Gioia's western Queens district, including Astoria Houses, Woodside Houses, Ravenswood Houses in Astoria and Long Island City's Queensbridge Houses, which is the largest public housing development in the nation.

"It is against federal law, against city policy and simply wrong for predators to be living in public housing," Gioia said. "The city should not be subsidizing rapists and pedophiles. It is a threat to public safety and an insult to taxpayers."
