Michael Bloomberg won’t be happy until we’re all rats in his Skinner box — a place where you get a shock if you push the “sugary soda” lever and the elevators are slow by design:

As part of his ongoing campaign to transform New York City into what he calls “Fit City,” Mayor Michael Bloomberg is promoting “active design” for low-income housing developments being built there, including plans to prompt residents to use the stairs and rooftop gardens for growing “healthy” foods.
[...]
In March, the 124-unit, $37.7 million Arbor House was opened in the Bronx, according to a July 31 Newsday report.

The article stated that the “affordable housing” development features murals and music along the stairway, with elevators located farther away from the front door that are “programmed to move at a slow pace.”

“One witty slogan posted on a staircase door reads: ‘If your dog is fat, you’re not getting enough exercise,’” the Newsday article stated.

Welcome to the future of government dependency.

Bloomberg has an elevator in at least one of his houses that is poorly maintained, possibly to encourage himself to take the stairs.
