CHELSEA?The High Line has plenty of copy cats that are making use of old industrial infrastructure, and the Friends of the High Line are kicking off a series of public talks to expand on these ideas and inspire more transformations across the country. The events will bring together innovative thinkers working on big projects in other cities, allowing them to present their plans to a new audience. Talks about Chicago and Detroit are planned for June 18 and 26, respectively, and more events are being developed for the fall. [Curbedwire Inbox; official]

NEW YORK CITY?The New York State Association for Fair Housing, along with HR&A Advisors, released a new study that says "affordable housing spurs economic activity, creates jobs, and helps revitalize communities." The study is based on data collected from the Department of Housing Preservation and Development and New York State Homes and Community Renewal. It found that the affordable housing industry creates 31,800 new jobs and sustains 5,640 permanent jobs each year, and it brings in $2.6 billion during construction and sustains $650 million in annual economic spending. To crunch the numbers and get the nitty gritty details, you can find the full report on NYSAFH's website. [Curbedwire Inbox]
