I don't know how one can call HDB "public housing" in the same sense as the others. HDB are not for "poor people" as the thread title clearly states, but they are for the majority of Singaporeans.

HDB is public housing. Its through subsidized and affordable housing. Though many singaporean are rich but majority still cant afford private home.

HDB has two types, one is the big one which is slightly expensive but cheaper than private. The other type is for those who cant afford home which is most units come with one room only. In fact that they are built within the big hdb complex just like pic below.

Yes, but just because it is public, it is not "public housing for poor people" in the traditional sense like all those others posted here. No other nation that I can think of has around 70% of its housing stock being publicly owned like in Singapore.

SF's projects are among the most violent parts of the city. Case in point: the projects pictured here were the site of 7 shootings in the past 4 days, leaving 4 people dead and 6 injured. They're also quite run down, to the point that the US dept. of Housing and Urban Development rated many of them as among the worst in the nation back in 2007. Of course the city tends to ignore or be slow to react to the worst problems (mold, broken appliances, lack of smoke detectors, backed up sewers, broken lights, vacant units, squatters, bullet holes, etc) yet still manages to repaint them regularly so they look nicer from a distance. The SF Housing Authority is notoriously bad at what it does, and has been mismanaged and full of corruption for decades.

There are some decent projects in SF, but the vast majority of them are somewhere on the spectrum of "this is not a good place to live".
Woah. I thought this was from a third world country. This is why large areas of social housing are a bad idea. Australia also made this mistake in previous decades. Public housing is now integrated with private housing and alot of new land developments usually have a certain percentage of blocks for new public housing.
