I had the pleasure of speaking with Vicki Been , who among other positions is a Professor of Law at New York University School of Law and Director of the Furman Center.
Great discussion on foreclosures and homeownership.
She and her team do important housing policy work at the Furman Center for Real Estate and Urban Policy .
Check it out. 
They also produce a must-read publication called State of New York City’s Housing and Neighborhoods .
She was incredibly patient with me before the interview while I struggled with a software glitch, and to top it off, my microphone decided to sound scratchy midway during the interview (her mic was fine). Despite this, she’s agreed come back in the future. Phew!
