Co-op City is a massive housing development located in the Northeastern section of the Bronx, New York. The development consists of thirtyfive high-rise buildings varying from 24 to 33 stories each.

The ethnic makeup of Co-op City is largely African-American and Hispanic. However, recently "Co-op" (as it is often called by people in the vicinity) has recently seen an influx of Russian immigrants.
In the hip-hop group "Nice & Smooth's" 1991 song "Sometimes I Rhyme Slow" Co-op City is indirectly mentioned by the lyrics "I go to Bay Plaza to catch a flick." Bay Plaza is a strip mall located inside of Co-op City.
