    My great Grandmother lived in those apartments inthe 50’s and 60’s until she died. I just found that out toady, the wood work on them looks decent. They are much older than I thought. My family is connected to these apartments. That is kind of neat.

    this sample appears to be architecturally significant and should be preserved!

    The railing woodwork is a distinct style I have never seen up here in the Northeast. Its imminent demise seems partially due to the attitude that anything younger than 110yrs old is not significant.
