This is the second of two panels that reveal the sophisticated work of organizing in today’s complicated, high-pressure real estate market, how civic data is used (and needed) to support that work, and the changes to housing policies needed to preserve New York’s economic and social diversity. A new report from the Community Service Society provides some excellent background: Rent Regulation in New York City: How it Works, and How to Fix It.
