My first room assignment was room 33 in the 129 building....It was and old building, built around the turn of the century,...The society owned it but it had worldly people in to.......I'm not sure why but maybe there was a law that provented them from being kicked out or something. It was a 2 bedroom, 1 bath apartment (about 1000 sq. ft.) There were 7 of us in there, all new boys ( less then one year there). There was 2 guys in each of the bedrooms and 3 guys in the living room.
I don't know why I missed this post 11 months ago. The society sold this building and it eventually went coop. I bought an apartment six years ago. Best investment ever. Apartment 33 is owned by the Co-op president and could probably be sold now for around $1 Million. I have gone to several christmas parties there. Great place.
