State of the City’s Housing & Neighborhoods
The Furman Center is pleased to present the 2007 edition of the State of New York City’s Housing and Neighborhoods. Every year the Furman Center compiles statistics on housing, demographics and quality of life in the City, its five boroughs and 59 community districts.
Our analysis this year analyzes mortgage lending trends in the City since 1996, exploring how the population of mortgage borrowers has shifted, and how innovations like subprime and piggyback loans have transformed the home mortgage landscape in New York City.
