Panel on the State of the Housing New York Plan
Almost four years after the initiation of Housing New York, many Pratt Alumni have been deeply involved in carrying out the mission of creating and preserving the most significant amount of affordable housing in decades. Join fellow alumni and staff to discuss the current housing crisis in New York City and the policy response achievements and challenges by the City of New York.
