The 2020 Census in New York City could add more than 300,000 neighbors to the five boroughs.

Department of City Planning (DCP) Director Marisa Lago stated that the organization has submitted addresses for more than 122,000 housing units that did not appear on last year’s census, according to Bklyner.  

Around 41,600 of these new addresses are in Brooklyn, with locations spanning from Bensonhurst to Canarsie.  Queens and Manhattan account for roughly 30,450 and 30,140 addresses respectively.  DCP anticipates that this count will continue to increase by tens of thousands into the beginning of 2020.  

DCP’s new submissions should be positive for residents.  “An undercount can deprive us of the congressional representation that we are entitled to and the funds that we need for good schools, safe roadways and modern hospitals,” Lago told Bklyner.   

With addresses on the rise, the city’s population could reach over 8.6 million, which means block parties are about to get a whole lot bigger.
