Neighborhood abandonment rates in New York City are predicted within a model which investigates the importance of property tax assessments, building conditions and tenant characteristics in owners' abandonment decision. The results indicate that tax assessment rates are a major determinant of abandonment, and point to policy changes capable of slowing the spread of abandonment in vulnerable neighborhoods.
