ProPublica recently created an interesting interactive map which tracks evictions and rent stabilization across the five boroughs of New York City using data from the New York City Public Advocate’s Office, the New York City Department of Finance, and other sources.
Since 1994, the City Council and state legislature have gradually dismantled legal protections for New York City tenants, giving landlords an incentive to hike rents and evict lower-income tenants. We’ve mapped more than 450,000 New York City eviction cases filed between January 2013 and June 2015. Look up your building to see its recent eviction cases and whether it may be rent stabilized.
