What happens when your New York City neighborhood gets rezoned? Zoning is an important tool when it comes to sharing the city, affecting the population density, the size of buildings, housing, jobs, and infrastructure. Host Emily Myers digs into the details with Christopher Walters of the Association for Housing and Neighborhood Development, a neighborhood advocacy group.
In the second episode of this season, The Brick Underground podcast takes you into the heart of the co-living phenomenon. Co-living companies remove a lot of the friction involved in renting with roommates—they stock the pantry, clean your linen and provide a ready-made community. Brick Underground reporter Mimi O’Connor shares her research on companies operating in NYC and we get into some of the legal issues that might arise with tenant and landlord attorney, Michelle Itkowitz.
In the first episode of the new Brick Underground Podcast, host Emily Myers takes on affordability now that the rules governing rent control are set to expire. Will the Democratic flip of the State Senate expand rent protections for tenants in New York City? How will changes impact the city's landlords? Urban Planner Moses Gates sheds some light on the possible reforms. We'll also hear from real estate attorney Jerry Feeny about new scaled Mansion Tax which pushes up closing costs for NYC buyers.
