Did You Know the Stuyvesant Town-Peter Cooper Village in Manhattan’s lower east side is home to about as many people who live in Fairbanks, Alaska? That’s 30,000 people! And if you lived in one of these 11,000 apartments, you would have access to vast range of amenities including: a café, an ice skating rink, sports screenings, summer concerts, basketball courts, food festivals, concierge services, private shuttle bus, an indoor children’s play area and a senior community center.
Another of the country's largest apartment communities, the Parkchester in the Bronx, New York, is a completely self-contained community with onsite shopping and doctors’ offices. Parkchester has more than 12,000 apartments, 100 retail outlets including Macy's and Applebees, as well as banks, doctors’ offices, supermarkets and a post office. It's situated on 129 landscaped acres with flowerbeds, fountains and playgrounds.
