In collaboration with NYU’s Furman Center
Our second episode focuses on Haven Green, an affordable housing development for older adults who have experienced homelessness proposed for the current site of the Elizabeth Street Garden. How can communities

Do wealthy neighborhoods like Soho have the duty to welcome new development and share their amenities with lower-income households?
