Affordable Housing

WHAT CHRISTOPHER WILL DO:

  • Pass community-based zoning, like the Chinatown Working Group plan, that will enact policies to protect against tenant harassment, while discouraging over-development that prices out residents

  • Allocate a larger percentage of discretionary funds for residents of NYCHA to have better programming and safer, cleaner facilities

  • Be the point of contact for small businesses and residential tenants who are being harassed, helping them navigate the different protections that are already in place, while advocating for more accountability

WHAT CHRISTOPHER HAS DONE:

  • Testified and spoken at every community meeting to prevent the Two Bridges developments that will cause irreparable damage to the affordability of the Lower East Side
  • Fought for the rights of tenants by rallying with neighbors against landlord harassment throughout Lower Manhattan
  • Established the first Residential Green Committee in NYCHA's LES Infill I and II so that residents can take environmental action and educate their children about the importance of green space and resiliency
