The Pratt Center for Community Development’s advocacy for legalizing basement apartments was highlighted in a Crain’s New York article. Acting Director Lena Afridi told the publication: “We encourage legislators to pass this bill as a first step in providing New York City with the local control it needs to enact measures that bring these units up to code, creating safe housing for all.”
