This summer I interned with the New York City Department of Housing Preservation and Development (HPD) in the research department. HPD is the department of the goverment of New York City responsible for developing and maintaining the city's stock of affordable housing. The main focus of my internship was a project that I worked on expanding on a study that the department I was working with had conducted. The project focused on comparing New York City neighborhood quality and seeing if low-income New Yorkers who were given access to public housing were living in better neighborhoods a few years later.
