NYC Tenants Project, 2015

In September 2014, three students from NYU’s Studio 20 program were assigned to cover a story about alleged tenant harassment in the Lower East Side. Compelled by their story, student Clàudia Prat set out to find similar stories and get to the bottom of this incredibly complex issue, becoming the project producer of this interactive and collective documentary.

With the use of video, audio, photography and interactive storytelling, the piece spotlights the loss of approximately 300,000 rent regulated apartments in New York City and prompts us to ask: what kind of city do we want?

The project was presented at the Urban Democracy Lab at NYU.
