Mayor Announces Housing Milestone, Formation of Tenant Anti-Harassment Unit
Mayor de Blasio recently touted a new housing record. He said the city financed more than 32,000 low-income homes this past year, and nearly 110,000 since taking office. Of those, about 30 percent are new construction, while the rest have been preserved through subsidy. The mayor said the city is on track to meet his target of 300,000 units by 2026.
