Originating in the 1920s as part of a movement to build planned urban neighborhoods, garden apartments have come to dominate rental housing production in the United States. Cur-rently, nearly half of all rental starts consist of these low-rise apartments in open space multifamily complexes. What types of people live in these de-velopments, and how have they changed since the early-1970s? This book presents the findings of samples of garden apartment tenants nation-wide and in New Jersey, comparing them with the prior baseline data. The volume will be particularly useful to planning and real estate profession-als concerned with up-to-date trends in the rental housing market. It will also be of interest to those concerned about the relationship between post-World War II American architec-ture and social values.
