State of New York City’s Housing & Neighborhoods – 2005 Report

The Furman Center is pleased to present the 2005 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 New York City’s neighborhoods from a variety of sources.

This edition streamlines the presentation to focus attention on the critical data that reveals how the City, its five boroughs, and its 59 community districts, have fared in recent years.  It shows how each of the City’s neighborhoods is progressing, both in absolute terms and in relation to other areas of the City.  It provides the first independent analysis of the just-released results of the 2005 Housing and Vacancy Survey.  Finally, it adds a chapter analyzing how the affordability and availability of housing has changed between 2002 and 2005.
