I guess the building was a school but I did go inside. You could tell that it was a school because the windows were some of the rooms were very high up. I don’t even know if that could have been part of the gym, but it wasn’t anything that I liked. It looked like it probably could be a very safe, secure place, but its kind of ugly to be a senior place. There are people living at Sherman Park; I guess it’s just depends on what you like. It also had a fence around, the playground kind of surrounded the building and this and that and no beautification.
The staff was very great and very polite. One thing I did like was that they did have a library with movies; they actually did have like a little small theater. I guess basically what I am speaking about, what I didn’t like was the actual apartment because I like the said the windows were way up. If you have been in a gym in a school, the windows aren’t like at your level. The community room was fine, I only objected to the apartment. They did have washers and dryers -- which I did like -- and some parts were carpeted, I don’t necessarily like carpet myself, but they did have some bare wood floors and I like that. But my main objection is that the windows being so high up on the wall didn’t give me that homey feel. I wouldn’t say that I complained about everything else. I think maybe that they probably could have done a little bit more to make it look a little more homey. Obviously there are people that like it there because they were people live there. There’s nothing wrong with it except I just didn’t like those windows.
