Join Milano as Carol Lamberg launches her new book, Neighborhood Success Stories: Creating and Sustaining Affordable Housing in New York. A long-time leader of New York City’s affordable housing movement, Carol was Executive Director from 1983 until 2014 of the Settlement Housing Fund, one of the city’s largest and most innovative sponsors of affordable housing. Part memoir, part policy analysis, Neighborhood Success Stories distills key lessons for building and managing affordable housing. Carol reflects on the social purpose, vision, and practical challenges of the projects she’s been involved in, while vividly capturing the life and times of those who engaged in the creation and maintenance of housing and those who have benefited from it.
“Carol Lamberg knows her stuff, and she shares it all in this book. It’s a testament to her decades-long struggle to create affordable housing in New York City by any means necessary—one that has great relevance today, even as federal support for housing programs has dwindled to a trickle.”
