Although the Bronx is considered New York City’s most affordable borough, it has the lowest median income in New York City.
This week on Fordham Conversations we’ll take a look the University Neighborhood Housing Program (UNHP). It’s an organization dedicated to keeping housing affordable in the Northwest Bronx and New York City.
The organization is cosponsored by Fordham University and the Northwest Bronx Community and Clergy Coalition. Jim Buckley, executive director of the UNHP, talks about the challenges of keeping housing in the Bronx affordable. Dr. Brian Byrne, Vice President of Fordham University Lincoln Center and UNHP board member, talks about how things have changed since the organization began in 1983.
