History and Housing in one Brooklyn Neighborhood WITH LAURENCE FROMMER

There’s no doubt our city is growing quickly. With New York City’s population projected to reach 9 million by 2030, the demand for housing is vast, and housing in New York City is becoming increasingly unaffordable. Brownsville, a neighborhood in Brooklyn of 1 square mile, has the largest concentration of public housing of any neighborhood in the United States. Join Community Solutions and the American Planning Association on a tour of Brownsville and learn about the fascinating history of a neighborhood that believed public housing could support communities. Hear firsthand from residents, city officials, and local community organizations about strategies being developed and proposed for the future. This tour is co-sponsored by The American Planning Association New York Metro Chapter Housing & Neighborhood Revitalization Committee.
