A few homes are still available. Join us!
Call or go online today to schedule an info session and land tour or check us out on Zoom.
Construction at Rocky Corner continues throughout the winter months thanks to mild temperatures this year. This allows us to move forward, and first closings are scheduled for this Spring! We still have homes available in all four models, so there is still time to purchase here. We know that once we are sold out, it will be a long time before homes become available again for resale, so if you have been thinking about and dreaming about cohousing and Rocky Corner in particular, we encourage you to act now before the doors close to buying here.

There has been great interest from our neighboring Brooklynites, and we periodically sponsor events at the Park Slope Food Coop. Just a few weeks ago, we collaborated with a cohousing community from Northhampton, Massachusetts, on a standing-room-only event. Interest in cohousing is steadily increasing, as people realize the importance of community more and more, at any age and at any stage in life!
At the event, we showed the new cohousing documentary entitled The Best of Both Worlds. Check out the trailer to this video:
Say hi to Lori S. from Queens, NY. Lori has been a resident of NYC for over 30 years. Originally from Germany, she came to this country in her mid 20s and first lived in Philadelphia. When she visited New York City for the first time, she immediately fell in love with the Big Apple and its diverse population and moved there soon afterwards. Lori works for a German-owned family office in Manhattan. She commutes to work daily by bicycle, weather permitting. On evenings and weekends, Lori can be found at the local YMCA, where she attends yoga and Pilates classes. She has diverse interests and loves learning new things. “If someone took the time to write a book, a song, or create a work of art, it is usually worth checking out.”
Lori has been intrigued by cohousing for many years, and when she discovered Rocky Corner and all that it has to offer, including its proximity to NYC, she immediately attended an info session and site tour, where she met some of her future neighbors and other visitors, and was convinced that this is the right community for her. Lori was thrilled to find out that the 33 acres of pesticide-free farm land will have community and private garden areas. The 4,500-square-foot common house, with its commercial kitchen and dining area was the icing on the cake. She looks forward to sharing many of her vegan recipes with her new neighbors. Lori, like all of us, is concerned about climate change and was excited to discover that Rocky Corner is more than 500 feet above sea level.
All of us are eager to move into our brand-new homes at Rocky Corner and start building our community on site instead of long-distance via Zoom sessions! We are excited to be a part of Rocky Corner cohousing, the first of its kind in Connecticut—close to New Haven and NYC, yet rural, quiet, and peaceful! We have hiking trails, an organic farm, and a wonderful community of like-minded folk. We hope you will come for a visit and join our community!
“Do not be dismayed by the brokenness of the world. All things break. And all things can be mended. Not with time, but with intention. So go. Love intentionally, extravagantly, unconditionally. The broken world waits in darkness for the light that is in you.” —L.R. Knost
