More affordable units lost than gained

Because of vacancy destabilization and gentrification, more affordable apartments have been lost than gained in the past 12 years.

Read the Community Service Society report, "What New Yorkers Want From the New Mayor: An Affordable Place to Live"  by Tom Waters and Victor Bach.  

If the State Legislature won't repeal vacancy destabilization, we need home rule so politicians accountable to renters can do it.
