Already noted as eligible for listing on the National Register of Historic Places, Goodyear Heights has been widely recognized as a state-of-the-art example of community planning and worker housing in architectural, building and industry publications like The Architectural Forum, Industry Week, The Architectural Review, The American City, Buildings & Building Management and others. It has been noted as a prime example of an Anglo-American Suburb by one of America’s most recognized residential architects, Robert A.M Stern, and discussed in detail in his book Paradise Planned: The Garden Suburb and the Modern City. Goodyear Heights has been highlighted in books such as Building the Worker’s Paradise by Margaret Crawford; From Tenements to the Taylor Homes: In Search of an Urban Housing Policy in Twentieth-Century America, by John F. Bauman, Roger Biles and Kristin M. Szylvian; A Genius for Place: American Landscapes of the Country Place Era, by Robin S. Karson; and The Suburb Reader, by Becky Nicolaides and Andrew Wiese.
