Edward Howe III, managing director of the NCB New York office, said, “While the summer is traditionally a slower time of year, we’re still seeing demand from a number of cooperatives looking to take advantage of the still low interest rate environment.
“We are pleased to have provided loans to 16 additional communities, and remain a consistent source of financing for New York area housing cooperatives.”
