The affordable housing agency Community Housing Innovations released a report Monday listing the Westchester County communities that have the biggest losses of young adults due to unaffordable housing.
Topping the list was Rye, which saw a 63 percent decline in adults aged 25 to 34 between 2000 and 2011; Rye also saw a 16 percent decline in adults 35 to 44 in the same period.
The agency blamed the high cost of housing in Rye and other Westchester communities where there are few or no multifamily apartment buildings. The agency’s representatives will discuss their findings on Tuesday at a press conference.
The 10 Westchester communities with the biggest declines of adults aged 25-34 between 2000 and 2011 in CHI’s survey were:
Pound Ridge: -58%
New Castle: -40%
Yorktown Heights: -36%
