#N12BK: NYC Housing

Posted: Updated:
BROOKLYN -

According to a new study, NYC has more inadequate housing than any other city in the country.

New York is followed by Boston and Los Angeles.

The study was done by a contracting company called Porch.

Porch looked at census data on housing quality.

The study notes 1 in 20 Americans live without adequate housing.

It also states 11.9 percent of public housing and 5.1 percent of private households in the country were deemed inadequate.

Also, 7 percent of residencies in NYC had inadequate housing, which could mean mold, water leaks, vermin or lack of heat.

When it came to heat, NYC ranked the third-most “uncomfortable cold” city behind Detroit and Seattle.

What do you think of this study?
