What New Yorkers Want From the New Mayor: An Affordable Place to Live

Thomas J. Waters, Victor Bach

Summary: As the new mayor of New York City takes office, he must contend with a significant shortfall of affordable housing: between 2002 and 2011, the city lost 385,000 units of housing affordable to low-income New Yorkers. This report offers concrete proposals for improving the city's housing landscape and finds deep public support for new investments in affordable housing. This is the second in a three-part series detailing policy recommendations for the new mayor based on findings from The Unheard Third, an annual survey of low-income New Yorkers.
