Affordable Housing in New York free pdf How has America's most expensive and progressive city helped its residents to live? Since the nineteenth century, the need for high-quality affordable housing has been one of New York City's most urgent issues. Affordable Housing in New York explores the past, present, and future of the city's pioneering efforts, from the 1920s to the major initiatives of Mayor Bill de Blasio. The book examines the people, places, and policies that have helped make New York livable, from early experiments by housing reformers and the innovative public-private solutions of the 1970s and 1980s to today's professionalized affordable housing industry. More than two dozen leading scholars tell the story of key figures of the era, including Fiorello LaGuardia, Robert Moses, Jane Jacobs, and Ed Koch. Over twenty-five individual housing complexes are profiled, including Queensbridge Houses, America's largest public housing complex- Stuyvesant Town- Co-op City- and recent additions like Via Verde. Plans, models, archival photos, and newly commissioned portraits of buildings and tenants put the efforts of the past century into social, political, and cultural context and look ahead to future prospects for below-market subsidized housing. A richly illustrated, dynamic portrait of an evolving city, this is a comprehensive and authoritative history of public and middle-income housing in New York and contributes significantly to contemporary debates on how to enable future generations of New Yorkers to call the city home. Contributors include: Matthias Altwicker, Hilary Ballon, Lizabeth Cohen, Andrew S. Dolkart, Peter Eisenstadt, Richard Greenwald, Christopher Klemek, Jeffrey A. Kroessler, Nancy H. Kwak, Nadia A. Mian, Annemarie Sammartino, David Schalliol, Susanne Schindler, David Smiley, Jonathan Soffer, Fritz Umbach, and Samuel Zipp. Featured housing complexes include: Amalgamated Cooperative Apartments * Amsterdam Houses * Bell Park Gardens * Boulevard Gardens * Co-op City * East River Houses * Eastwood * Harlem River Houses * Hughes House * Jacob Riis Houses * Johnson Houses * Marcus Garvey Village * Melrose Commons * Nehemiah Houses * Paul Laurence Dunbar Apartments * Penn South * Queensbridge Houses * Queensview * Ravenswood Houses * Riverbend Houses * Rochdale Village * Schomburg Plaza * Starrett City * Stuyvesant Town * Sunnyside Gardens * Twin Parks * Via Verde * West Side Urban Renewal Area * West Village Houses * Williamsburg Houses
