Big Ideas, Global Impacts: NYU Furman Center Researchers at ACSP

News & Events | November 3rd 2014

In late October, researchers from the NYU Furman Center took part in the 54th annual conference of the Association of Collegiate Schools of Planning (ACSP). Housing and neighborhood development were key themes throughout the four-day conference, and researchers from the NYU Furman Center presented on a range of topics.

Presenters from the NYU Furman Center included:

  • Faculty Director Ingrid Gould Ellen led a series of sessions on foreclosures, neighborhood change, low-income housing tax credits and the impacts of area segregation. Professor Ellen participated on the “Community Indicators 2.0: Achieving Influence and Embeddedness in Pittsburgh, Baltimore and New York City” panel and presented the following research:
    • “Crime and Neighborhood Change: Has Falling Crime Invited Gentrification”
    • “Housing Maintenance and the Great Recession”
    • “Poverty Concentration and the Low Income Housing Tax Credit Program: Effects of Siting and Tenant Compostion” and
    • “Are Barrios Good or Bad? The Effects of Metropolitan Area Segregation and Latino Access to Opportunity.”
  • Research Fellow Jorge de la Roca and Legal Fellow Justin Steil both presented the “Are Barrios Good or Bad?" paper as part of the “Does Neighborhood Matter? The Effects of Neighborhood Composition and Location on Families and Individuals” session.
  • Doctoral student Fei Li presented “Do Maximum Parking Standards Deter Development?” as part of the “Better Outcomes for the Vulnerable in Strong Housing Markets – Can Planning Do Better?” session.
  • Doctoral fellow Davin Reed presented “Crime and Neighborhood Change: Has Falling Crime Invited Gentrification?” as part of a session on Neighborhood Change in the 21st Century.
