Bronx sees second highest eviction filing rate in the state, with data revealing hot spots in the borough


As housing advocates are pushing for tenant protections in the state budget, data published by the Cornell University ILR School Buffalo Co-Lab shows that the Bronx had the second-highest eviction filing rate in the state in 2022.

Across the borough, 9.5% of renter-occupied households faced eviction filings last year, a rate higher than every county in the state other than Rensselaer County in the Capital Region, which saw 10.7%.
