Hunts Point/Longwood and Mott Haven/Melrose share the same sub-borough area designation. The two have a very low homeownership rate, and CD 102 has experienced relatively slow increases in housing prices. Since 2000, the number of units authorized by new building permits has steadily increased. CDs 101 and 102 have the second highest rental vacancy rate — 6% — in the borough, and the eighth highest in the City. CDs 101 and 102 also had the second highest percentage of rent-subsidized units in the City in 2005.
