Ep. 5-Carol Lamberg: From Ashes to Triumph

Building housing in New York isn’t easy. There’s lots of red tape and high housing costs, but none of that detracted Carol Lamberg from pushing through projects that later when on to flourish.

As a longtime housing advocate, she spearheaded thousands of units in the New York area that are models for long-term success. These included buildings that accepted people from all income levels, breaking down social barriers and creating a sense of community. Many of these projects were burned-out buildings in The Bronx, rescued and revitalized from a history of arson and abandonment.

For Lamberg, creating housing is just the start. She shares how maintaining buildings well, investing in resources like community centers, and finding the right tenants help turn a building into a community.
