The Gem from the Archive this month is a remarkable booklet, published by the New York City Housing Authority, containing statistics on every New York City public housing project begun before June 1962.

The booklet contains an incredible depth of information on each of these projects and even includes information not currently available on the NYCHA website.

The booklet features federal, state, and city housing projects, including SRO rehabilitation projects, and includes such figures as each project’s total square and cube footage, land cost, construction cost per rental room, and site improvement  and development costs per rental room.

This booklet is a wonderful example of the rare information available in CHPC’s archival collection. Click here to download a PDF copy of the NYCHA Project Statistics booklet.
