A panel discussion about participatory research, homelessness, and real estate speculation.
In January of 2012, Picture the Homeless released Banking on Vacancy; Homelessness and Real Estate Speculation, a product of collaboration with the Center for Community Planning and Development. Participatory research methods were utilized to count vacant properties in all five boroughs. Among the key findings of the report is that New York City has enough vacant buildings and land to house the homeless four times over.
