Approximately 200 New Yorkers logged onto, called into or livestreamed an information session focused on housing. DCP presented with the Department of Housing and Preservation regarding existing housing in SoHo and NoHo as well as strategies for housing and affordable housing in the Neighborhood Plan. There was also a question-and-answer session with attendees.
This session focused on SoHo/NoHo’s mixed-use character: understanding quality of life in a community where businesses and residents live in close proximity.
