No Vacancy

The stores are closing! The Avenues are vacant! Or are they? Today, we're talking Storefront Vacancy rates.Join us as co-host Erik interviews our other co-host Dan, who has been walking around the neighborhood since January collecting some hyper-local data about our commercial vacancy rates. We'll learn what can lead us to think that there is a vacancy "crisis", what the actual numbers are, and how we can begin to move away from a narrative that centers the concerns of property owners and get back toward the concerns of mom-and-pop merchants. We'll also get a bit of data literacy about how storefront vacancy surveys are conducted, and how we classified and improved our data over time.----Check out the show notes for background info and bonus materialBe sure to follow us on Twitter and Facebook
