The apartments on Cleveland Ave,Baltimore Ave, and Tam O' Shanter. Plus Chicago Ave,New York Ave,Boston Ave,and Fairfield Ave were prime residences. Apartment complexes were enclosed with a pool in the center. Everyone knew each other and watched out for each other,it was an amazing time.

Don't forget, Pardee Plilips/ Franscisco Park.
There was a waiting list to get a lease on one of these cinder block duplexes. They even had a washing-machine in the kitchen. A great place for young families since there were 2 and 3 bedroom units available for rent. In the late 1950s the rent was $125.00 for the 3 bedroom unit. There were tons of dogs and kids running amok at all times. Sadly, it remains, but is a ghetto.
