What to Know Before Moving to Stuyvesant Town

The Design

The design of Stuyvesant Town was influenced by Le Corbusier’s modernist “towers in the park” concept. Tall apartment towers were placed in a park-like setting. Today the trees, shrubs, and plants are mature and truly do provide a lush park-like environment in the 80-acre complex. Outside of Central Park, Stuy Town is the largest park setting in Manhattan.

The ethnic makeup of the residents is 60% White, 14% Asian, 9% Hispanic, 8% African American, 5% Pacific Islander, and 4% of two or more races. The majority of residents are between the ages of 30 and 60 and enjoy a median household income about 30% higher than the US average.

The Amenities

The list of Stuyvesant Town amenities is varied and long. A leafy urban oasis surrounds the apartment buildings with tree-lined walking paths, 15 playgrounds, athletic courts, an ice rink, and green lawns. Five of the 15 playgrounds are themed and the athletic courts include 4 bocce courts, 1 volleyball court, 5 ½  basketball courts, 5 paddle tennis courts, and modern fitness facilities. The hub of the community is the Oval Fountain where residents can enjoy special family events, movie screenings, fitness classes, or simply lounge in the shade of the trees.

If you’re tired of cooking, you don’t even have to leave the complex. The on-site Five Stuy Cafe has indoor and outside patio dining. Meet friends at the community center or catch up on work at the Oval Study co-working spaces. Additional conveniences include six on-site secure parking garages, storage lockers, and the Sunday NYC Greenmarket for fresh organic produce and food products. The community plans events around the year, from New Year to Christmas and Hanukkah parties. Since 1947, The Town & Village community newspaper has been informing residents of local happenings. Furry family members are loved and welcome at Stuyvesant Town. There’s even an on-site vet clinic!

Safety is a concern for many Manhattanites, but not for those who live in Stuyvesant Town. Over 60 security officers use a neighborhood patrolling approach on bicycle, Segway, car, or foot and are supported by 36 emergency panic call stations, 1,300 security cameras, and a public area video intercom system. In addition to patrols, there are several 24/7 staffed posts. Adding to security, each building and certain garages require residents to use a photo ID key-card for entry.
