This paper analyzes the determinants of homeownership gap between the immigrant and native population in the State of New York. Using the data from 2010-2012 American Community Survey, the paper provides empirical evidence that the homeownership gap between the immigrant and native households persist during the recent housing boom/bust recovery periods. There is a 30 - 31 percentage homeownership gap between the immigrant and natives households. The homeownership gap between the two groups of population becomes smaller among those who have 100% or total ownership on their dwellings. On the other hand, the gap is bigger among those who partially own their house and still purchasing their house by paying mortgage.
