Three boys playing at Carl Mackley Houses, ca. 1935

Stronorov and Kastner designed the buildings to contain a large number of apartments, while providing open exterior spaces between each building. The housing project was named for Carl Mackley, a 22-year-old hosiery worker and member of American Federation of Full-Fashioned Hosiery Workers. Mackley was killed by a non-union worker during the H.C. Aberle Company strike of 1930.
