Review quote

"I teach a course in housing policy and for a number of years have been disappointed with what is available to assign to students to read. What has been needed is a book which presents different perspectives on housing problems and policies and which gives readers a sense of the 'nuts and bolts' issues involved in low income housing programs. Housing and Community Development in New York City certainly addresses this gap in the literature." -- David P. Varady, author of Neighborhood Upgrading: A Realistic Assessment
