Co-op City Nearing 50 Years

It’s been a half-century. On Monday, December 10, Co-op City will be celebrating 50 years since the first families moved in. To help acknowledge the milestone Curbed New York  has a piece on Co-op City history with an eye towards how much it has changed.

Although the first families moved in 1968, it wasn’t until 1973 that the Baychester cooperative was actually completed and 60,000 residents called 15,372 apartments their home, according to Curbed.

It’s also interesting to read about the early proponents and opponents of the creaton of Co-op City.

Of course before there was Co-p City, the land the giant project sits on was the one-of-a-kind Freedomland amusement park.

The 50th Anniversary was reported on by thisistheBronX in October.
