As New York City mass transit costs increase again for the third time in six years, it's interesting to note that the MTA ridership is still a shadow of what it once was. I'm a proud passenger of NYC public transit, but it's hard to imagine that the annual travelers on the NYC subway system today is well below the passenger totals of the 1930's and 40's, despite New York having a population of a million or two less people.
Search all of New York City's affordable housing by name, owner, year built, location, financing or physical information (for example by # of building violations in 2010). Or, you can research all sorts of demographic information from Crime to Education to employment to health to all sorts of housing informtion, to property tax to population, ethnic demographics and transportation.
The Furman Center for Real Estate and Urban Policy collects a broad array of data on demographics, neighborhood conditions, transportation, housing stock and other aspects of the New York City real estate market. We make our data directly available to the public through our new Data Search Tool, and publish comprehensive analyses of these data in our periodic reports.
The Data Search Tool is a new online application that provides direct access to New York City data collected by the Furman Center. Users can select from a range of variables to create customized maps, download tables, and track trends over time. Users are able to overlay never-before available information on privately-owned, publicly -subsidized housing programs collected through the Furman Center’s Subsidized Housing Information Project (SHIP). Information about how to use the Data Search Tool is available in our online guide.

I am wondering whether this is a site glitch, or a major move to compete with Craigslist, but rental posting on Backpage appears to be free at the moment...
This is a completely different model than Craigslist, that allows owners to post for free, and charges brokers $7-10 per post to brokers... (and enforces everything rather loosely and randomly)
