Jonathan Tarleton : About & Contact
I’m a city planner, researcher, writer, and oral historian currently living in Boston, Mass. I focus on using housing policy to improve access to opportunity for marginalized communities and am currently managing affordable housing development projects with Urban Edge, a community-based organization in Roxbury, Boston. I'm also engaged in research on public housing authorities' use of criminal convictions in tenant screening; & decision-making, governance, and long-term affordability in limited equity housing cooperatives.
Beyond this work as a housing practitioner and researcher, I’m a writer and editor. My past roles include chief researcher and contributor for Nonstop Metropolis: A New York City Atlas, an investigation of the city through maps and essays published in October 2016 from UC Press and editors Rebecca Solnit and Joshua Jelly-Schapiro, and editor of Urban Omnibus, a magazine of the Architectural League covering planning, policy, architecture, art, and activism in New York City.
