by Matthew Lasner

Today, one in five homeowners in American cities and suburbs lives in a multifamily home rather than a single-family dwelling.

In this unprecedented study Matthew Gordon Lasner explores the history of co-owned multifamily housing in the United States, from New York City's first co-op, in 1881, …
