Lucy Block is the Research and Policy Associate. She is responsible for research and data analysis to support tenant organizers and end residential displacement in New York City’s low-income neighborhoods and communities of color. She has a Master’s degree in Urban Planning from Hunter College and previously worked for Cypress Hills LDC, Jacob Riis Neighborhood Settlement, and Community Voices Heard. Lucy grew up in Stuyvesant Town and now lives in Elmhurst, Queens. She loves NYC most in the summer, when she can swim in the Rockaways and spend all night outside. She tolerates NYC in the winter, but definitely does not love it.
