Rent Stabilization in New York City

The fact brief presents data and analyzes the characteristics of rent-stabilized units and their tenants in New York City. In 2011, New York City was home to 1,025,214 rent-regulated units, representing nearly half of the city’s total rental housing stock. The analysis is released in advance of the U.S. Supreme Court’s announcement on whether it will hear the case of Harmon v Kimmel, which challenges rent regulation laws in New York City and would have broad implications for the city’s rental market.
