Stuyvesant
      Town
In the 1940s, our returning soldiers
    needed a place to call home.
Home Sweet Home
...but not for everyone.




         *1950
It took until 1969 to bring
the non-white resident
population up to 13%.
Then all was quiet for
a few decades.




                   Until...
*2006
Tenants fought back.
They offered $4.5 billion.
But it wasn’t enough.




      A bigger deal was made.
It’s Stuyvesant Town – the Next Generation.
If you got the green...
...then you get the green.
Overall,
it’s a pretty
nice place
to live.
For the young...
...and the old.
You won’t
go far
to buy
your
veggies.
There are plenty of
places to walk...
...and places to play.
There’is a great Senior Center...…
...and soon, a gym!
You can
catch up
with a
friend...
...or even
catch a
movie.
But are you getting what you paid for?
