New York City is in the midst of an affordability crisis which poses an existential threat to the city’s characteristic vitality and diversity. Even during a time of rapid development in the affordable housing sector, many New Yorkers are being priced out the city and many more are struggling to pay the rent. Are existing plans to address the issue adequate, or is it time to consider more radical approaches? What are some big ideas for making New York housing more affordable?

Hear five distinct proposals — as diverse as the city itself — from thought-leaders and activists trying to reframe our current approach to housing. A discussion moderated by The Atlantic’sCityLab journalist Kriston Capps will follow.

This program is co-presented by CityLab.
