Harlem Vacancy Visioning Session
Community residents, elected officials, homeless people, housing advocates, and other stakeholders gathered on the sidewalk outside of three city-owned lots, vacant since the 1970's, to highlight neighborhood needs, and call on the city to develop the property as deeply and permanently affordable housing. Advocates and politicians in attendance were fighting for passage of the Housing Not Warehousing Act (Intros 1034, 1036, 1039), an omnibus bill currently before the City Council that would empower the city to finally quantify vacant buildings and lots throughout the five boroughs, and to identify solutions.
