In the face of rapid new development, New Yorkers are grappling with how to best ensure that private investment doesn’t come at the expense of access to some of the city’s most valuable assets: open space, transportation, and affordable housing. Through zoning, the city is helping to foster this balance, creating benefits for the public as seen in examples such as Brooklyn Bridge Park and Mayor Bill de Blasio's affordable housing plan.
