Housing

Although it had initially been a summertime escape area, the neighborhoods of C.B. 13 quickly became attractive areas for permanent housing. The landscape changed over the years, with high rise buildings replacing bungalows, with middle income housing next door to aging structures and SRO’s. Here, the Committee studies the problems of NYCHA issues, of other matters for those in high-rising structures, particularly due to the weather vulnerability of the peninsula and its abutting areas. Here, future development, future housing demands are analyzed to be further studied by the Borough and by the City. Studies are done on impacts of housing development and the needs of the extant neighborhoods.
