Description

Stuyvesant Town is New York’s most famous application of Le Corbusier’s solution to urban planning: towers in a park.

It was the largest “superblock” ever undertaken in the city when it was completed not long after the end of World War II.

It required the relocation of about 10,000 residents from about 600 buildings in a 72-acre site of 18 blocks bounded by First Avenue, Avenue C, the East River Drive and 14th and 20th streets.

Stuyvesant Town consists of 35 buildings of 12 and 13 stories with 8,755 apartments, over half of which were one-bedroom units.

The development was undertaken by the Metropolitan Life Insurance Company in April 1943, the year after it had completed its huge, but somewhat smaller Parkchester development in The Bronx.

It is just to the south of Peter Cooper Village, which is between 20th and 23rd Streets and has similar but taller buildings and larger apartments. Peter Cooper Village, which has about 2,500 apartments, was named after an industrialist who was the founder of Cooper Union.

By the time both complexes were ready for occupancy in 1947, they had received about 100,000 applications.
