Editorial Reviews

Presents revised papers from a March 1996 conference held at the New York University School of Law, by contributors including tenant advocates, lawyers, academics, and professionals in housing programs and agencies. Early chapters examine factors affecting supply and demand for housing in New York City, describe the housing tenure system, and explain how the city's regulatory environment deters new construction. Later chapters examine government intervention in New York City's housing market, and analyze the city's Housing Court and problems of homelessness. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
