EBC Calls Out De Blasio on NYC Affordable Housing

“That’s the thing that’s perplexing to us,” said Rev. Tyrone Stevenson, the senior pastor of East New York’s Hope Christian Center and a co-chair of East Brooklyn Congregations, whose incredibly appealing and affordable Spring Creek project, built on what had been landfill in East New York, is cited in the report as a “case study” in getting more out of city-owned land.

Given EBC’s decades-long record of working closely with the city to get actually affordable community housing built, they’re exactly who you’d expect the mayor to be talking with. Yet even as the report namechecks them, they’ve been left hanging on the line.
