New York City does not currently conduct a routine practice of revisiting area wide rezoning after some years have elapsed to determine whether the consequences were as expected or different from what was anticipated. The Capstone team worked with the New York City Department of City Planning to create a methodology and perform an evaluation of the effects of area wide rezonings, providing insights into how the tools of zoning policy operate in the complex processes of neighborhood change.
