Assessing the Impact of the 2016 East New York Rezoning, 6 Years Later (Panel)

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Over strong community objections, the De Blasio administration passed a comprehensive rezoning in East New York, Brooklyn in April 2016. Neighbors contested the new neighborhood plan, concerned about predatory real estate speculation and rising rental prices. The city responded by forcing developers to build a small percentage of affordable housing. De Blasio called the policy "mandatory inclusionary housing."

This panel aims to assess the impact of the rezoning six years later. First we will briefly summarize some early-stage findings about the state of new construction and affordability in East New York. Then we will focus on how the rezoning has impacted residents of the Nehemiah homes, a large affordable development in East Brooklyn.

We are lucky to be joined by Nehemiah residents Carmen Daniels and Matilda Dyer. The panel will also feature State Assemblymember Latrice Walker, who represents New York's 55th District, which includes Brownsville, East Brooklyn.
