Home Sweet Gone

Home Sweet Gone

27 minutes

Angry at the abandoned buildings and vacant lots in their neighborhoods in the early 1990s, youth producers investigate poor housing conditions in New York City owned apartments and bank “redlining” policies that prevent investment in low- income housing. Community activists protesting the city’s landlord policies and youth construction programs give hope for change.
