I researched my building for today’s #ThursdayDoors and discovered it was not always the tidy, stately gem it is today.
First I found it’s an apartment building, largely inhabited by seniors. It’s a Section 8 place. Leasing requires its inhabitants earn no more than $28,000 a year and they cannot be full-time students. For $640 a month, renters can have a small open living space with one bedroom, one bath. The amenities aren’t fancy, but it’s a perfectly functional space for one or two who prefer to live unencumbered.
According to listings, the lobby is marbled and there is a lovely green space round the back.
It’s been an apartment building since at least the 1946 census. The built date is not available.
The building was updated in 2013, when it sold for $266,000. At that time…
As far as I can tell, we #ThursdayDoors people are fans of rehabilitation, and I thought you’d enjoy knowing all that.
I am so glad they didn’t put some standard glass doors on this frontage.
