  1. The building’s exterior looks a little bit depressing for a senior apartment building. However, the apartments are the most important part and I think they’re done well.

  2. The exterior looks to be inspired by 1017 Home Street, also a senior living building in The Bronx.

  3. What temperature are the servers kept at?

  4. I identify as a 74 year old man and I have a bad knee. Can I get one of these apartments.?
