Cooperation for Service, not Profit.

Welcome to the Amalgamated Houses. Our website is intended for our cooperators and former cooperators, people applying for membership and those thinking of applying, for historians and students of the cooperative movement, and for everyone interested in this historic and living cooperative community.

Founded in 1927, Amalgamated is the oldest limited equity housing cooperative in the United States. We still provide affordable housing and a strong community for 1500 moderate-income families.

Democratically governed, we remain committed to Cooperative Principles. Community activities are available for all ages and a wide range of interests.


"It was offered to us to demonstrate that through cooperative efforts we can better the lot of our co-workers. We have also been given the privilege to show that where all personal gain and benefit is eliminated, greater good can be accomplished for the benefit of all. It remains too for the members of our Cooperative Community to exert their efforts to run this cooperative and make it more useful, and more interesting, for all who live in these apartments"
