The Stanley M. Isaacs Houses are three public housing buildings in the Yorkville neighborhood of Manhattan in New York City. The project is located between 93rd and 95th Streets, stretching from 1st Avenue to the FDR Drive. The three buildings, completed in 1965, are 24 stories tall and contain 635 apartments. Architects Frederick G. Frost, Jr. & Associates designed the buildings. 45 percent of the apartments in Isaacs are set aside for tenants over the age of 62.
Both housing projects, as a whole, have been designated a "high crime zone" by the NYPD's 19th precinct since the early 2000s, and are thus policed to a higher extent, especially due to the heavy socio-economic mixing of the immediate surrounding area, which includes public housing, working-class small tenement buildings, middle-class medium-size buildings, and upper-middle class to upper-class luxury buildings along 1st avenue in the area.
