Northtown

Northtown was the first phase of the New York State Urban Development Corporation's plan for the redevelopment of Roosevelt Island as a planned residential community. The four buildings (totaling 2,100 units) opened in 1975 and are constructed in a U shape with the open portions facing the river. The actual construction has not held up that well in style or substance, although it's a fabulous example of mid-70's utopian modernism.
