“The New York City Housing Authority, the largest public housing authority in the United States, has become a model for the construction and rehabilitation of quality, innovative housing and other facilities for low-income families. The playgrounds, police stations, and community centers built by the agency serve over half a million people from the full spectrum of New York's communities. Demonstrating that the highest quality design can indeed be achieved on restricted budgets, the housing authority has designed more than 80 new community centers in the last eight years, working with prominent architects such as George Ranelli, Agrest & Gandelsonas, and Hanrahan-Meyers.”
