Address: 149 East 38th Street, New York, NY 10016

Join City Limits and the Henry George School of Social Science for a panel discussion on New York’s rent-regulation system.

When the state legislature in June passed historic reforms of New York’s rent-regulation system, tenants hailed a victory and property owners bemoaned a disaster. Now that the shouting has faded, the city will start to get a look at what the policy actually means for renters, landlords and neighborhoods. Are tenants able to access the rights and resources the law made available? Are property owners feeling the pain or learning to cope? Are public agencies doing their job to make the new law work well? And what impact will the law have on affordability in New York?

Moderated by City Limits’ Executive Editor, Jarrett Murphy, our panel features:

  • Carmen Vega-Rivera, Tenant Leader for Community Action for Safe Apartments
  • Denise Favorule, Board Member of the Henry George School of Social Science and Associate RE Broker for the Corcoran Group
  • Frank Ricci, Director of Government Affairs for the Rent Stabilization Association
  • Tom Waters,Housing Policy Analyst for the Community Service Society of New York
