Mayor de Blasio’s ambitious affordable housing agenda is at the heart of his administration’s pledge to rewrite “a tale of two cities.” During the coming months, Albany will be a policy battleground, but the true impact of this fight will be felt in the five boroughs where more than 2.3 million people live in rent-regulated housing and where demand for affordability is at an all-time high. What does the coming battle over renewing rent regulation laws and continuing tax breaks for developers portend for turning de Blasio’s vision into reality? Join a forum with leading officials, experts, and practitioners who will shed light on this question and more.
