June 15, 2017, 8:30am-11:00am

Serviam Gardens
323 East 198th St
Bronx, NY 10458


The Bronx is the new Brooklyn - a threat, good news, or ridiculous?

Over the years, UNHP has contributed to the conversation about what’s actually happening in the Bronx—in particular the Northwest Bronx—and informed the discussion by sharing the experiences of local groups as well as data and analysis. We have been doing just that in our new blog series Views From the Northwest Bronx since February. The posts have covered changes in community development, Bronx demographics, multifamily housing sales, and the impact of city housing policy and private investment in the borough. We will conclude with the June 15 ViewsNWBX Affordable Housing Forum designed to highlight some of these important perspectives. 

Join us for the ViewsNWBX Affordable Housing Forum, a Bronx-based panel discussion on the range of housing and demographic topics covered in our recent Views from the Northwest Bronx blog series.

Breakfast - 8:30am

Presentation & Discussion - 9:00am

Moderator: Roger Hayes, UNHP Board member


  1. Leila Bozorg, NYC Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) Deputy Commissioner for Neighborhood Strategies
  2. Joseph Zitolo, a principal with Lemle & Wolff, a full service firm specializing in the development, construction and management of high-quality affordable housing
  3. Carmen Vega-Rivera, Community Leader for Community Action for Safe Apartments (CASA), a community group that strives  to protect and maintain affordable and safe housing through collective action.
  4. John M. Reilly, Executive Director, Fordham Bedford Housing Corporation (FBHC), the largest community-based housing developer in NYC.  FBHC works to improve our Bronx community by providing community-run, safe, sound and affordable housing.
