KINGS COUNTY POLITICS | 35th District City Council Candidates Weigh In On Privatizing NYCHA Property

KCP asked the candidates running for the 35th District City Council seat covering Fort Greene, Clinton Hill, Prospect Heights and Crown Heights to provide their stance on Mayor Bill de Blasio’s ongoing NextGen housing development program, which involves leasing NYCHA-owned properties to private developers.

The district has a particularly large stake in the issue. Their district is home to over 6,000 units worth of NYCHA housing, according to the latest data from the Institute for Children, Poverty and Homelessness (ICPH).
