Located in the hotly contested NYC Housing Development, built in 1975, and where Mario Cuomo launched his career. The Community House was created to bridge the differences between the existing primarily white Jewish community and the diverse NYC Housing residents.

Created to ease tensions between the primarily white Jewish community and the incoming, diverse NYC Housing residents. This project was the last public housing complex built in NYC and became one of the few NYC Housing Cooperatives.
