Rochdale Village was a limited-equity, middle-income cooperative. Its apartments could not be resold for a profit, and with the average per room charges when opened of $21 a month, it was on the low end of the middle-income spectrum. It was laid out on a massive 170-acre superblock development, with no through streets, and only winding pedestrian paths, lined with newly planted trees, crossing a greensward connecting the twenty massive cruciform apartment buildings. Rochdale was a typical urban postwar housing development, in outward appearance differing from most others simply in its size. It was, in a word, wrote the historian Joshua Freeman, “nondescript.”
