By the Numbers: Concentrated Poverty

Presented in conjunction with the release of the NYU Furman Center’s State of New York City’s Housing and Neighborhoods in 2016 report, this year’s forum focuses on poverty and its spatial concentration, including recent changes in poverty across New York City’s neighborhoods and demographic groups.
