Roscoe was renamed Sun Valley in 1948 and the Basilone Homes project was demolished in the late-1950s.
Photograph dated March 22, 1948 shows children playing in the area near the administration building, one of the few safe places for children on the grounds of the Basilone Housing Project in Roscoe (later Sun Valley). Basilone has a lack of adequate playgrounds for the more than 1,000 children that live in the housing project. The children often make do with playing in unsanitary and often dangerous conditions.; See images #00115236 through #00115239 for all photos in this series.
