Rent Regulation:
The Future of Housing Affordability in New York City

Lawmakers in Albany recently passed some of the most sweeping rent regulations in New York’s history. These rules are aimed at addressing housing affordability in the state, especially in New York City—yet critics of the law charge that it will do far more harm than good.

What do these new rules mean for New York City? Who are the winners and losers, and where do we go from here? Are New York’s lawmakers treating a symptom of the city’s housing shortage without considering the shortage itself?
