Co-Op City is the world’s largest cooperative middle-income housing development located in the northeast portion of the Bronx. It includes 15,372 units of housing in 35 high-rises and 236 townhouses.

It is meant to serve citizens that are ineligible for public housing yet unable to afford market-rate private housing. The majority of the development’s 320-acres is open space and dedicated to providing residents with a greenway.

Most of the streets are named after writers, labor leaders, inventors and Socialists in honor of its progressive origins. Previous notable residents include Justice Sonia Sotomayor.
