State Senator Daniel Squadron is hosting a Town Hall meeting tomorrow night, in which a panel will shed a little light on the recent rent laws headed for the upcoming Albany session. The city’s rent stabilization regulations are set to expire this June, and the political battle between tenant rights organizations, landlords, as well as the internal tug-of-war between the Senate Republicans and Democrats, is heating up; everyone wants something. The goal of this particular meeting is to inform the community about how they’ll be affected by what’s to come, and how the city will be impacted. After all, the rules currently in place are the the linchpins for affordable housing in New York.

Following the meeting, you can meet with advocacy groups, along with city and state agencies at a resource fair, where questions can be answered and you can obtain information on any housing issues that might affect you.

The meeting is Tuesday, December 2nd at 6:30pm, at PS 142, 100 Attorney Street (between Delancey and Rivington).
