3. “Affordable New York” at Museum of the City of New York
With the recent initiative of Mayor Bill DeBlasio to preserve and create 200,000 affordable housing units within the next ten years, this new exhibit by the Museum of the City of New York is both timely and educational. “Affordable New York: A Housing Legacy” explores and documents the many ways in which activists and policy makers have fought to promote subsidized housing. It offers a timeline of the past, current and even the future of our housing initiatives, giving the public a rare glimpse inside the system by way of a series of panel discussions with developers, architects, professors, housing advocates and community leaders. The exhibit and calendar of events will run through February 16, 2016.
