Geography of a Housing Plan
March 6th, 2008

The Independent Budget Office has released maps and analysis of the locations of affordable housing funded under the mayor’s plan to create or preserve 165,000 affordable units. About 61,000 have been funded so far.

In Manhattan, Staten Island, and Brooklyn, about 70 percent of the units will be preserved while the Bronx is split between construction and preservation and construction accounts for 60 percent of the units in Queens.

Most of the preserved units are clustered in Northern Manhattan and North Brooklyn while the created units are more evenly spread out amongst the city.

Manhattan has the majority of funded affordable housing with about 23,000 while the Bronx ranks second with about 20,000. The Bronx has the most low-income units with over 17,000 and Manhattan is second with over 16,000. But Manhattan has the vast majority of moderate-income units with over 2,200; about double the Bronx, which is the runner up.
