South Asians are among New York City's fastest growing ethnic populations, experiencing a growth rate of more than 159 percent in the past two decades. Like many in New York City, the South Asian community was hard hit in the last decade by the economic downturn and collapse of the housing market. With the community's rapid growth during the most difficult economic period our country has faced in decades, South Asians are living in severely overcrowded housing conditions, are at high-risk of displacement, and face great barriers to achieving economic growth. This study aims to profile the South Asian community's housing and economic development needs. Using these insights as a window into the challenges faced by immigrant communities around the City, the ultimate goal is to explore specific public policy approaches to boost these groups that are core to ensuring the City's recovery to a thriving economy.
