East New York was the first neighborhood to be approved for rezoning as part of Mayor Bill de Blasio's controversial affordable housing plan. There has been a lot of reporting on how it's going to affect tenants in the low income area. This capstone highlights how it is also affecting small property owners in the area and how the city needs to work on protecting them from being displaced as well.
