What Does Affordable Housing in New York City Look Like?

As reported by the New York Times yesterday, a new website offers some insight into what's affordable in New York City. Featuring a large, interactive map, the site maps income distributions by neighborhood and presents a clear picture of how many residents can actually afford to live there.

Although the information is not new, it presents a clear way of showing the disparities in income across the city. It is particularly useful in showing the staggering proportion of families that cannot afford to live in New York City without some type of assistance.

When it comes to housing assistance, the numerous and varied types that exist can often become confusing to understand. In response to this, the website also presents in-depth information about all types of housing assistance on different government levels and flushes out all the terms and programs in a clear way.
