Law in New York City. The Board holds an annual series of public meetings
and hearings to consider research from staff, and testimony from owners,
tenants, advocacy groups and industry experts.
RGB staff is responsible for providing administrative support to the Board
and prepares research regarding the economic condition of the stabilized
residential real estate industry including operating and maintenance costs,
the cost of financing, housing supply and cost of living indices. The RGB

by the public, other governmental agencies and private organizations, and
