Instead of weeding through the city’s constantly changing portal of affordable housing opportunities, New Yorkers can now track these addresses in one central location. Brownstoner shares CoreData.nyc, a new interactive data portal from the NYU Furman Center for Real Estate and Urban Policy that shows subsidized housing throughout the five boroughs and allows users to narrow down the map by factors such as median income, demographics, sales volume and pricing, zoning, and crime.
The tool was created so that the City Council can “track and preserve affordable housing throughout New York City,” but it’s also been made publicy accessible. The portal uses data from more than 100 city, state, and federal souces, and can be searched by address or by scrolling through the map. Not only does it include affordable housing construction that’s just been announced or built, but it includes the start and end dates of subsidies to make visible those properties at risk of going market rate.
Each address has its own report that breaks down political and administrative districts, physical and financial conditions, regulatory tools, and city and state programs.
City Council Speaker Melissa Mark-Viverito said in a statement, “Investing in CoreData.nyc means that Council Members across the five boroughs will now be able to actively engage in tracking and preserving affordable housing units throughout their districts. This will provide increased transparency in the complex landscape of affordable housing in New York City, and be a crucial resource for the staff and task forces that we rely on to make recommendations for agreements and restrictions affecting future supply.”
