Co-ops Stuck in Transition
Ever notice the buildings in Hudson Heights with signs that say "co-op apartments for sale"? These are usually cooperative apartment buildings that have not fully made the transition from rental to owner-occupied buildings. Sometimes the remaining rental units are in the undesirable parts of the building. Here are two photographs of one such building at 225 Bennett Avenue. The tenants clearly take great pride in their entrance, which is flanked by gardened planters. Too bad the owner can't clean the graffiti off the wall that houses the "sale" sign--not a great way to sell units.
