New York Resident: "There was a supreme court case regarding a village near where I grew up called Belle Terre NY. The case was to create a code in which no more than 2 unrelated persons could live in a "single family" house in this neighborhood. They won, so now cities across America can use this to exclude college students or others who wish to share residences from their neighborhoods."
