Housing New York

A key element of the Housing New York: A Five-Borough, Ten-Year Plan is to foster diverse, livable neighborhoods by identifying opportunities for affordable housing in all five boroughs, and harnessing affordable housing investments to generate quality jobs.

The Department of Housing Preservation and Development is working with the Department of City Planning, the Department of Transportation, the Department of Parks and Recreation, and additional City agencies, to organize Community Visioning Workshops in neighborhoods across New York City. “These workshops are valuable opportunities for local residents to have their voices heard as we collectively work toward building a more affordable, vibrant and dynamic city,” Mayor de Blasio said.
