Few people have had more of an impact on the recent history of New York than Richard Ravitch. In the 1970s, he helped rescue the City from financial ruin as Chair of the HRH Construction Corporation, and developed over 40,000 units of affordable housing. Under the Paterson administration from 2008-2010, he served as Lieutenant Governor and cleaned up the city's most notorious transit agency. As a long-time champion of subsidized housing, Ravitch has stood up for the financial well-being of the tenants living in the homes he built, while also balancing the cost of developing and maintaining government regulated housing. Join us for a conversation with Ravitch and Nixon Peabody Partner John Kelly, who represents for-profit and non-profit owners and operators of multi-family housing properties. This program delves into the themes of our exhibition Affordable New York: A Housing Legacy.See more cheap New York City events & things to do on Nifty NYC.
