The neighborhood of Harlem is steeped in history and culture. Music continues to pour out of its jazz clubs, and, on Sunday mornings, women wearing their finest hats still promenade down its brownstone-lined streets. Many of those brownstones, after years of being shuttered, are now being renovated to their former glory—ushering even more life to this legendary community and enticing new residents to, as Duke Ellington put it, "Take the A Train."
Yet, as is often the case with urban renewal, gentrification brings with it higher rents. And longtime residents—the ones old enough to remember the first Harlem Renaissance—are being priced out of their homes. Fortunately, they have Victory One, an apartment building for low-income seniors.
