State of New York City’s Housing and Neighborhoods in 2020

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:

2020 Focus on Renters and Recovery

This section draws on detailed rent payment data to build an understanding of the experiences of renters in affordable housing in New York City, and by extension, the landlords that house them. 

Citywide Analysis

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

Citywide Data and Neighborhood Data Profiles

These sections provide current and historical statistics for housing, neighborhood, and socioeconomic indicators for New York City and all its boroughs and community districts.
