REBNY, Landmarking & Affordability

Special interest groups like the Real Estate Board of New York that have long opposed landmarking or other limits on development used to argue that landmarking strangled economic development and ruined the values of property. Now they try to argue that landmarking promotes gentrification and makes New York unaffordable. Village Preservation has been a leader in confronting and refuting these lies, and demonstrating how landmarking can have a positive, stabilizing effect – on residents, neighborhoods, on property values, on small businesses, and on community character.
