That's the old Hilliard Homes housing project, a national historic landmark designed by Bertrand Goldberg (who also designed Marina City). Unlike most housing projects, it will not be torn down and is instead undergoing a upgrade that includes landscaping and interior renovations.

I am not saying that public housing in NYC is bad all together from the shots of them, it's more like what they replaced. Robert Moses was known for throwing public projects over actual city blocks, especially with public housing in the LES and Harlem. In reality, he placed them in areas that didn't really ask for them. If he had them built over empty lots, then there wouldn't have been a lot of displacement. Jane Jacobs didn't opposse the plan for public housing in her neighborhood b/c she didn't want people of low income living in her area, it was b/c the city wanted it where people actually lived and made the statements of why the City Planning Commission couldn't find a vacant lot to build it on.

Ribsduff, that's what I was thinking. By 'largest' do you mean most populated? Most land covered?

I'm sure I've seen bigger ones, especially in East Berlin and the old soviet block countries (Poland especially)

Is it really necessary to quote entire photo posts and repeat the photos again? Just delete the photo links when you use 'quote'.

I've probably already posted this beauty in this thread, but I can't get enough of the magnificent Trellick Tower in West London:

Prospect Plaza, which is located around Brownsville, in Brooklyn, used to be a housing project, but it became abandoned later on.
