Affordable housing remains a major issue for the city and state. Gov. Kathy Hochul addressed it during her State of the State address last week.
Now community leaders from across the city are calling on state lawmakers to come up with policies that will help convert unused office space to affordable housing.
The campaign is called the 5 Borough Housing Movement.
The executive director of the campaign, John Sanchez, joined Rocco Vertuccio and Shannan Ferry Saturday morning on NY1 to discuss his movement and describe what he wants from politicians.
