IS WESTCHESTER WINNING THE FAIR HOUSING BATTLE

WHILE LOSING FEDERAL FUNDING?

Westchester County, commonly thought of as a haven of affluence and New York City’s model suburb, has become increasingly stratified economically, as the urban/suburban divide intensifies. Exclusionary zoning and an increasing dearth of affordable housing perpetuates
income and wealth gaps.
