Stuyvesant Town—Peter Cooper Village adalah sebuah pengembangan kawasan penghunian swasta besar di East Side, borough Manhattan, New York City, dan salah satu komunitas perumahan swasta pasca-Perang Dunia II tersukses dan terkenal.[butuh rujukan] Stuyvesant Town, known to its residents as "Stuy Town",[1] mengambil namanya dari Peter Stuyvesant, Direktur Jenderal terakhir koloni Amsterdam Baru milik Belanda, yang peternakannya pernah menduduki lahan perumahan ini pada abad ke-17. Peter Cooper Village mengambil namanya dari industrialis, penemu, dan filantropis abad ke-19 Peter Cooper, yang juga mendirikan Cooper Union. Komplek ini, yang direncanakan dibangun tahun 1942 dan membuka bangunan pertamanya tahun 1947, menggantikan distrik Gas House yang dipenuhi tangki penyimpanan gas.

Komplek ini merupakan sekumpulan bangunan apartemen bata merah yang membentang dari First Avenue hingga Avenue C, antara 14th dan 23rd Street. Komplek ini memiliki luas 80 acre (320,000 ), sebagian dimanfaatkan untuk taman. Pengembangan penghunian ini terletak antara 14th dan 20th Street, Stuyvesant Town, memiliki 8.757 apartrmen yang tersebar di 35 bangunan penghunian dan bersama pengembangan kembarannya, Peter Cooper Village – terletak antara 20th dan 23rd Street – komplek ini memiliki 56 bangunan penghunian,[2] 11.250 apartemen, dan lebih dari 25.000 penghuni.

Pembangunan gabungan ini berbatasan dengan Sungai East/Avenue C di sebelah timur, Gramercy Park di barat, East Village dan Alphabet City di selatan, dan Kips Bay di utara. Wilayah sekitar di sebelah baratnya terkenal sebagai tempat berdirinya Stuyvesant Square yang bersejarah, sebuah taman dua blok yang dikelilingi bangunan tua Stuyvesant High School, Saint George's Church, dan Beth Israel Medical Center.
