"This important, full-block residential complex at 250 West 150th Street consists of 6, red-brick buildings that was developed by John D. Rockfeller Jr. in 1928 with a total of 536 apartments.

It was the first large co-operative project in the nation that was erected for occupancy by blacks, although in the Depression is became a rental. " Read Carter's Full Review
