Synopsis:

How has America's most expensive and progressive city helped its residents to live? Since the nineteenth century, the need for high-quality affordable housing has been one of New York City’s most urgent issues. Affordable Housing in New York explores the past, present, and future of the city’s pioneering efforts, from the 1920s to the major initiatives of Mayor Bill de Blasio.

The book examines the people, places, and policies that have helped make New York livable, from early experiments by housing reformers and the innovative public-private solutions of the 1970s and 1980s to today’s professionalized affordable housing industry. More than two dozen leading scholars tell the story of key figures of the era, including Fiorello LaGuardia, Robert Moses, Jane Jacobs, and Ed Koch. Over twenty-five individual housing complexes are profiled, including Queensbridge Houses, America’s largest public housing complex; Stuyvesant Town; Co-op City; and recent additions like Via Verde. Plans, models, archival photos, and newly commissioned portraits of buildings and tenants put the efforts of the past century into social, political, and cultural context and look ahead to future prospects for below-market subsidized housing.

A richly illustrated, dynamic portrait of an evolving city, this is a comprehensive and authoritative history of public and middle-income housing in New York and contributes significantly to contemporary debates on how to enable future generations of New Yorkers to call the city home.

Contributors include: Matthias Altwicker, Hilary Ballon, Lizabeth Cohen, Andrew S. Dolkart, Peter Eisenstadt, Richard Greenwald, Christopher Klemek, Jeffrey A. Kroessler, Nancy H. Kwak, Nadia A. Mian, Annemarie Sammartino, David Schalliol, Susanne Schindler, David Smiley, Jonathan Soffer, Fritz Umbach, and Samuel Zipp.

Featured housing complexes include: Amalgamated Cooperative Apartments · Amsterdam Houses · Bell Park Gardens · Boulevard Gardens · Co-op City · East River Houses · Eastwood · Harlem River Houses · Hughes House · Jacob Riis Houses · Johnson Houses · Marcus Garvey Village · Melrose Commons · Nehemiah Houses · Paul Laurence Dunbar Apartments · Penn South · Queensbridge Houses · Queensview · Ravenswood Houses · Riverbend Houses · Rochdale Village · Schomburg Plaza · Starrett City · Stuyvesant Town · Sunnyside Gardens · Twin Parks · Via Verde · West Side Urban Renewal Area · West Village Houses · Williamsburg Houses

From the Back Cover:

"With New York City's population and employment at an all-time high, the challenge of maintaining an adequate supply of affordable housing has never been greater. Covering over a century of government involvement in the production of housing, this impressive survey provides a valuable guide to understanding the range of approaches to planning and community development."--Mark A. Willis, executive director of the NYU Furman Center for Real Estate and Urban Policy

"New York City has been one of the greatest homes in human history for the aspirations of newly arrived immigrants, marginalized families, striving entrepreneurs, and culturally diverse talents because the city's reformers, advocates, and activists have demanded livable and affordable housing across two centuries of city building. Bloom and Lasner have shaped a compelling story of housing innovation, urban determination, and, most importantly, essential human progress and lives touched in profound ways."--Henry Cisneros, former secretary of the U.S. Department of Housing and Urban Development

"Affordable Housing in New York is an engaging account of more than a century of efforts to provide New Yorkers with below-market housing. The contributors are excellent and the extensive illustrations enhance the rich text."--Lawrence Vale, author of Purging the Poorest: Public Housing and the Design Politics of Twice-Cleared Communities

"Highlighting the important people, places, and policies that tell the story of below-market housing in New York, this is an authoritative history of the subject."--Edward G. Goetz, University of Minnesota

"Affordable Housing in New York is a treasure trove of profiles and photographs of the buildings, programs, and people that have long distinguished New York City as the nation's preeminent leader in providing housing for low- and moderate-income people. Whether one is an expert on housing or new to the field, this book will be an essential reference."--Alex Schwartz, author of Housing Policy in the United States
