We have collected data from multiple public and private sources to provide information on the 33,000 units of HDFC limited-equity cooperative housing and 56,000 units of HDFC nonprofit rental housing in New York City. Our database contains financial, physical, demographic, operational, regulatory, historical, bibliographical, legal, legislative, pictorial, and narrative content on HDFCs.

We rely on data, which we update regularly, from New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD), New York City Department of Finance (DOF), New York City Department of Buildings (DOB), New York State Homes and Community Renewal (DHCR), New York City Department of City Planning (DCP), New York City Housing Court, Manhattan Community Board 10New York State Supreme Court as well as the Urban Homesteading Assistance Board (UHAB), New York University Furman Center, and Citizens Housing Planning Council of New York City (CHPC) and the Avery Architectural and Fine Arts Library and Urban Planning Program at Columbia University.
