"Just a bunch of walkways through a housing complex"

I'm kind of at a loss for what to say about the Stuy Walks . . because they're just walkways extending from the center of the residential complex out to the different buildings. This is a massive housing development. Thousands of people live in Stuy Town and I find it so bizarre that the few times I've walked down Stuyvesant Walk, I haven't really seen that many people. These walks are basically like walkways through a park, but instead of a park, it's a housing complex that kind of looks like a park with dorms in it. It's really green and there are all of squirrels and the like, but it's very quiet as far as activity goes. The complex offers outdoor activities such as movie nights, bbq's etc., but I don't know how great the attendance is. It's an alright complex, though, as far as massive housing goes. And, the units are really nice. There's just neighborhood feel at all. It's a bunch walking in and out of their apartments. No one's really hanging out on the walks and there's nothing like a cafe or anything on them. It really is exactly like being in a dorm area.

"Stuyvesant Walk Meanders through the Stuyvesant Town Projects"

Stuyvesant Walk is the main walkway that meanders through the massive Stuyvesant Town apartment complex. It's a pleasant and safe walk and the only way to reach some of the buildings that are on the interior of the this huge community. The walkway has a lot of trees and bushes, so even if you are surrounded by high rise buildings, the greenery makes you feel like you are in a little private park. Stuyvesant Town is a city within a city, and it is almost always 100 percent occupied because of the rent control status on most of the apartments. If you can find an apartment here, you are very lucky. They are nicely appointed (even though they are older) and very affordable. This is a good place to live for moderate-income New Yorkers.
