as a moderate-income co-operative, Glenridge was instead created as a rental development to fulfill Federal Housing Administration
requirements. It was considered a model complex, with racial diversity of residents, and part of a desirable neighborhood
mixed in with private homes.Loretta Starvus Stack was a resident of the Glenridge Apartments and an officer of the Glenridge residents associations, working
to improve services for residents. She advocated for regular bus service to the neighborhood, and founded the nearby Crags
Court Community Garden. She is credited with organizing the conversion of Glenridge to cooperative ownership.
