Stuyvesant Town-Peter Cooper Village is a sizable, private residential development located on Manhattan’s east side. The complex in its entirety hosts 110 brick apartment buildings that stretch over 80 acres from First Ave to Avenue C, specifically between 14th and 23rd streets.

Planning of this post-WWII residential development first began in the early 1940s. Metropolitan Life Insurance Company developed the complex in time for its first building to officially open in 1947.
Stuyvesant Town-Peter Cooper Village has been bought and sold many times, with its most recent sale taking place in 2015. The development was purchased for $5.45 billion by Ivanhoé Cambridge and Blackstone.
