NEW ROCHELLE - The New Rochelle Housing Authority unveiled 131 new affordable housing units today.

In the first of three phases to bring affordable housing to the city, $40 million was spent toward building 80 townhouses plus an apartment complex. The units are fully occupied by tenants who used to live in public housing.
