A Little About Peter Cooper Village, Manhattan

A veritable neighborhood in its own right, the residential complex of Peter Cooper Village affords middle-class workers a chance to continue living in the midst of widespread gentrification.  It’s actually not just Peter Cooper Village per se but part of the overall Stuyvesant Town development, which replaced gigantic gas tanks (the area was, like most city waterfronts years ago, heavily industrial) with affordable housing.  Though planned in response to the Great Depression, Peter Cooper Village (and, remember, Stuyvesant Town) wound up giving preference to the returning veterans of World War II, greatly helping to ease those men back into society.

Yet it was a private project, a money-making venture, and controversy has surrounded the Peter Cooper Village-Stuyvesant Town enterprise ever since the beginning due to the competing goals of generating profit and serving the greater public good.  At the time, large-scale housing works like this were considered the province of good government, but the new idea of a public-private partnership was proved viable by the subsequent success.  Still, right into the new millennium, this public-private entanglement would bedevil following administrations, public and private, to the point of making history anew by being the largest commercial mortgage default ever in the United States when its new owners could not pay on promises made.

It’s all very sad, but life does go on in Peter Cooper Village and its fraternal twin next door.  Guards continue to patrol each complex.  Garbage is sorted and put out.  Grounds are maintained as ever.  Sprinkler showers still spray in summertime.  And the local weekly is still in print!
