Apartment Lore: Does Your Apartment Have a History?

Apartment Lore: Does Your Apartment Have a History?

As we mentioned yesterday, our old apartment had a sordid past and it reminded us that oftentimes in an older apartment building there can be some great stories (also some downright creepy ones). At dinner one night our downstairs neighbors pulled out a box that a previous tenant had left behind. It was filled with little notes and poems, painting a picture of what life was like at a different time in the apartment's history. My neighbors kept that box like a treasure chest full of some of the rich history of this place that we all called home. Does your apartment have some juicy history?

It should be noted that my neighbors tried to find out who the box belonged to long before they ever opened it. It was only once they knew it would never be returned that they peeked inside.
