Every public housing development, maybe even every public building, in the city has a specific name. Does anyone else think it’s odd that the development isn’t named in this story?

As somebody who plays as a reporter, I'm going to guess that the reporter at GBH who broke the story and who has been covering it for days now, simply forgot to throw in that the building is one of the Ruth Lillian Barkley Apartments on Washington Street, unlike in this story. It happens.

Really? A building that big with only one elevator? Can't they add a second at the end of a hallway or such?

Indicates the high rises have 2 elevators. I wonder if the broken elevator was in one of the 3-story buildings.

Nonetheless, still shameful it took as long as it did for repairs to be made.
