About Us

Gouverneur Gardens is a Mitchell-Lama Co-op that was built in the early 1960’s for the benefit of New Yorkers with low to middle incomes. This was a place where shopkeepers and teachers, blue collar laborers and nurses, police and fire department members could be proud to call home. This is a private Cooperative, though there are rules that keep the sale/purchase price affordable to future generations.

This is your home. The Board of Directors believes that access to information is important to shareholders. In this regard, this website was created. Please consider this a resource that will grow and change as we are able to include more topics.
