Interactive Eviction Map Shows Where Landlords Are Ousting Tenants


(image) Last year, ProPublica reported that evictions in NYC have increased over the last few years, thanks to a 1994 City Council vote that allowed landlords to deregulate rent-stabilized apartments that rented for at least $2K/month when the stabilized tenants moved out. This phenomenon, dubbed "vacancy decontrol," has drastically depleted the city's reservoir of rent-stabilized apartments; it's also, especially recently, contributed to landlords' efforts to evict rent-stabilized tenants in an effort to de-regulate their apartments. Now, a new app documents where people are getting evicted in the city, with large swaths of evictions popping up in gentrifying neighborhoods like Crown Heights and Bushwick. [ more › ]

Forecast: Summer's Over But You Won't Feel It This Weekend


(image) The fall equinox is at 4:02 this afternoon but the atmosphere doesn't have time for astronomical niceties, as we are headed into the warmest weather in more than a month.

That pattern, in the jet and in the temperature, has now reversed and we are in for several days of abnormally warm weather. Below that is a surface high pressure system moving slowly eastward, keeping what is now post-tropical cyclone Jose well offshore and bringing unseasonably mild air to the East Coast. [ more › ]
