State of New York City’s Housing and Neighborhoods in 2019

The State of New York City’s Housing and Neighborhoods report, published annually by the NYU Furman Center, provides a compendium of data and analysis about New York City’s housing, land use, demographics, and quality of life for each borough and each of the city’s 59 community districts.

The report is made possible through the generous support of our sponsors.

This year’s report includes the following:

2019 Focus on Eviction Filings

This section aims to build a basic understanding of recent trends in eviction filings in New York City and how they vary among neighborhoods.

Citywide Analysis

This section provides a broad, longitudinal analysis of New York City’s housing and neighborhoods. The chapter is divided into three parts:  renters and their homes; homeowners and their homes; and the City's housing stock.

City, Borough, and Community District Data

This section provides current and historical statistics for housing, neighborhood, and socioeconomic indicators at the city, borough, and community district levels.

Indicators, Rankings, and Methods

The final section includes definitions for each indicator in the report; community district indicator rankings; methods; and an index of New York City’s Community Districts and Sub-Borough Areas.
