Affordable housing is part of the bedrock of what makes New York City work. It’s what underpins the economically diverse neighborhoods New Yorkers want to live in. It’s critical to providing financial stability for working families, helping them get ahead and build a better life.
In this video from the Mayor’s Office, we see how the city invested 3.1 million into the Navy Yard Housing Development to address badly-needed repairs.
Our promise to create or preserve 200,000 units of affordable housing over 10 years isn’t a story that’s told in statistics and numbers. It’s a story that’s told in the positive effects it has on people’s lives. Watch Sheryl’s story to see what our housing plan has meant for the families living in the Navy Yard Development in Fort Greene, Brooklyn.
