This Place Used to be Such a Dump
So, before this beautiful retro-vintage Victorian mansion of apartments of sorts stood, it was a beautiful, run down, nasty, disgusting complex. It used to have a building that would have blocked my camera’s view from where I was standing that had many, many converted bedrooms and a single shared bathroom. They asked an exhorbitant amount of money for rent, to boot.
I remember standing in that building with my friend, who was desperate for housing (if you rent in this town, you know what I mean), and the floor was . . . bouncy. And I’m pretty sure it was haunted, too.
Anyway, they tore down that annex and refurbished the main house, leaving us with this beautiful Mill Street Historic District building. True to form, what looks like a mansion is really apartments. Very rarely do you find an intact mansion these days – I mean, really, when you’re rich, you want new or you want land. Old and no land? What-ever.
But this place has porches. No home should be porchless. Just saying.
