We received great news here at NHEMA this week! Our 
NYC Mayor Bill de Blasio has set forth, his plan to rezone communities like East Harlem to facilitate building more affordable housing. On Wednesday May 20th, residents & other stakeholders can be involved by joining in A Community Education Forum. The forum will be an opportunity for the whole community to be part of the discussion on the Neighborhood Study around the rezoning of East Harlem & the creation of new affordable housing.
