Cooperative Housing: A Study of a Program Initiated by Lenox Hill Neighborhood Association to Provide Middle-Income Housing for Evictees From Yorkville, 1955-1963
This study is an attempt to examine the process initiated by Lenox Hill Neighborhood Association as it sought to meet the needs of those people adversely affected by the building boom, especially the evictees. A community with a need for housing goes through a process or series of steps as it works to meet the problem created by that need. examining this process this study will try to point out how Lenox Hill Neighborhood Association using community organization methods helped the community grow and change to a more desirable state. The community of Yorkville has moved from one situation (many evictees with no available housing) to a somewhat better situation (services for evictees and some diversified housing for the area). of course, did not just happen.
