And how would you rectify this "problem"?

Young people whose parents are just middle class can't afford to live in Manhattan

Aside from the fact that this isn't true (I know plenty of sub-40 people living in Manhattan who have middle-class parents), one doesn't have to live in Manhattan to work in Manhattan.

There are two problems. The problem of high rents in Manhattan. And the problem of middle class young people being at a disadvantage.

I need to think more about the second problem, but the solution to the first problem is simple. Change zoning laws so that MORE APARTMENTS can be built.
