Today, Picture the Homeless and Hunter College's Center for Community Planning and Development (HCCCPD), has announced the first-ever count of vacant buildings and lots throughout the five boroughs. The survey, to be launched in February 2011, is the first of its kind and is unprecedented in scope.

Here's Tom Angotti, Ph.D., the Director of HCCCPD, speaking at our press conference.
