NEW YORK (AP) - Mayor Bill de Blasio has unveiled an initiative to help make New York City affordable for low-income artists.

In his State of the City speech Tuesday, the mayor said the city will invest $30 million over the next decade in 1,500 affordable units of live-work space for artists.

De Blasio says the city also will convert underutilized city-owned property into 500 below-market artist workspaces.
