Holding de Blasio to his affordable housing promise

Holding de Blasio to his affordable housing promise

Publication Date: 
Saturday, October 7, 2017

Four years ago, New Yorkers elected Bill de Blasio mayor after he told a two-cities tale about too many of us being priced out of our homes and hometown. One term in, rents are still rising even as he's on pace to fulfill his hugely ambitious promise to save or create 200,000 affordable units over 10 years. As de Blasio glides to reelection — talking about being open to new ideas, but not yet walking that walk — New Yorkers are still being priced out, and ever further out. Bed Stuy, Bushwick, Brownsville.
