Housing a Growing City
Jan 19, 2016, 6:30PM-8:30PM
Since the Tenement House Laws of the late 19th and early 20th centuries, New York City has been a national laboratory for innovative and affordable housing policies. But numerous challenges remain in a city with an expanding population. Low-rent housing is evaporating, homelessness is skyrocketing, the building stock is increasingly aged, and the city’s economic and demographic landscape faces ongoing shifts. Join a panel of leaders in New York City urban planning—including housing advocates, community leaders and city officials—to discuss these changes in our urban fabric and the potential solutions to ensuring the city remains a leader in affordable housing. This event is co-presented with the Museum of the City of New York as part of the Affordable New York: A Housing Legacy exhibition program and takes place at the Museum. Tickets are $10 with discount code RENT on the MCNY website.
