Most of the residential buildings on Roosevelt Island are rental buildings. There is also a cooperative (River cross) and a condominium building (River walk). One rental building (Eastwood) has left New York State’s Mitchell-Lama Housing Program, though current residents are still protected. Three other buildings are now working toward privatization, including the cooperative.
