NYC 2040: Housing the Next One Million New Yorkers

Jesse M. Keenan, Vishaan Chakrabarti

NYC 2040: Housing the Next One Million New Yorkers examines the physical and equitable implications of housing future generations of New York City residents. Using simulations to measure both the quantitative and qualitative implications of development, authors Keenan and Chakrabarti test a working hypothesis that certain zones within NYC have the potential for hyper-urbanized development, with greater levels of density and intensity of use. The research presented in this book attempts to provide an empirical platform for informing design, planning, and development decisions for the future of housing in New York. Join Keenan and Chakrabarti at Van Alen Books to celebrate the new release.
