    Example of the BS this town allows to happen on the daily… house built a hundred years ago, interior almost as old. No dishwasher, no modern conveniences, doorways no wheelchair will possibly fit through. Drafty, moldy, “bad neighborhood”. Rent? Nearly $2000 per month. Some people sleep under bridges because they cannot afford RENT. In the richest country in the world. What a horrific species we have become.
