A City of Renters?

33.2: Percentage of New Yorkers who own their homes, a record high (compared to 28.7 in 1990).
68: Percentage of Americans who own their homes, proving that we're still, all things considered, a city of renters.
40: Percentage of New York City homeowners who are foreign-born, further proving that locally grown New Yorkers tend to rent (or perhaps proving that we just happen to host a planet's worth of pieds-à-terre).
47: Percentage of New York City homeowners who are women, which doesn't prove anything; it's just nice.
15,000: Projected number of foreclosure filings this year.
1: New York City neighborhood that actually registered a decline in home ownership from 1990 to 2005. (It's Bushwick.)
