When and how did New Yorkers come to regard tenants as having rights and landlords as having obligations? Where should the fine line be drawn between the free market and government oversight of rent issues? What is the future of housing in NYC? Panelists are Gale Brewer (NYC Councilmember, District 6), Elizabeth Blackmar (Columbia University), Adriene Holder (Legal-Aid Society), Laurie Lau (Housing Court Judge), Jack Freund (Rent Stabilization Association), and Scott Stringer (Manhattan Borough President). This event was presented by the New-York Historical Society.
