Inwood Project Will Combine Library Branch, Affordable Housing

A public-private partnership is spearheading development of The Eliza, which combines a new Inwood branch of The New York Public Library (NYPL) with 100% affordable housing into one building. It’s the result of a public-private partnership between city agencies, the NYPL and Robin Hood, the city’s largest poverty fighting philanthropy. 

Located at 4790 Broadway, The Eliza will offer the community in the recently rezoned Inwood neighborhood 174 deeply affordable homes, a two-level public library branch, a community learning space, and a universal pre-kindergarten facility.  

“The Eliza exemplifies what can be accomplished through community engagement and collaboration across the public and private sectors,” said Eric Enderlin, president of the New York City Housing Development Corporation.

Named for Eliza Hamilton, wife of Alexander Hamilton, the new building is being developed by a joint venture between the Community League of the Heights, Children’s Village, Ranger Properties, Alembic Community Development, and Housing Workshop.
