About Stuyvesant Town

Stuyvesant Town (or more formally Stuyvesant Town-Peter Cooper Village), known to its residents and New Yorkers simply as “Stuy Town”, is a large residential development on Manhattan’s east side spanning the blocks from East 14th and East 23rd streets between 1st Ave and Avenue C. Stuy Town was initially planned as a post-war housing project in response to the city’s housing crisis and opened to residents in the late 1940’s, with preference given to applicants who were veterans. The neighborhood has a tight knit community and maintains its own newspaper as well as a bevy of amenities and facilities that are available to all residents including a gym, lounge, playgrounds and basketball courts. Stuy Town is known for its relatively attractive real estate prices compared to other Manhattan neighborhoods as well as its abundant supply of no fee rental apartments. This along with the area’s residential feel has made the area popular with anyone looking for good deals on spacious, family friendly apartments located in a quiet neighborhood that maintains a bit of a sleepy college-town vibe.
