    The Coop City does resembles some of the apartment buildings in HK but it's still New York. I don't know much about Coop City but their architecture are similar to most New York housing projects. Coop City though is privately owned and is not runned by the New York Housing Authority.

    Anyway, what are some of the largest housing projects in the Bronx?

    It's cooperative, hence Co-op City.

    The Tracey Towers, left of center, are the Bronx's tallest:

    Same firm (Davis Brody Bond) and vocabulary as Waterside Plaza, which predates it.

    Now it doesn't matter what the poll for "Should there be a Bronx section?" says. We have a mini-Bronx sections here right now!

    are the Tracey Towers housing for the poor? Does the Bronx have more housing for the poor than any other borough? Is it true?

    anybody knows...

    The Tracey Towers are middle class housing owned by either the city or the state. I live in Co-Op City and the buildings are falling apart :x I actually think the Tracey Towers are pretty :roll:

    I kinda like them, too. They remind me of the Corinthian Towers in Manhattan; very organic-looking.

    I believe they should build a 1'000 footer by Grand Concourse and call it the Yankee Tower or something...atleast there would be something nice to look at when going to the Bronx...

    Apparently the prejudice runs deep.
