There are at least twice as many residential evictions in the Bronx than in any other borough, according to a new interactive map and data set released this week by Acting Public Advocate and Council Speaker Corey Johnson.

In 2018 there was one eviction for every 79 units in the Bronx, while in Manhattan there was just one eviction for every 345 units, according to the data, sourced by the Department of Investigations. In all, 6,858 tenants were evicted last year in the Bronx, while just 2,709 were evicted in Manhattan. In Brooklyn, there were 5,701 evictions in 2018 and in Queens there were 4,043, according to the data.

Just under 20,000 tenants were evicted by city marshals in 2018, a small drop from 2017. That lower rate may be due to the implementation of the Right to Counsel law in August 2017, which provides lawyers for low income tenants facing eviction in 15 city zip-codes. By 2022, the City Council aims to provide $155.5 million of legal services to tenants.

By neighborhood, tenants in Fordham, Norwood and Melrose got hit hardest by evictions, with about 3,400 between them last year.  Decca Muldowney
