20 West 10th Street in Covington, Kentucky, the apartment building where I lived for almost a year and a half, has been condemned by the City.
I found this out from Cat Lady who I ran into yesterday while, again, sitting on that bus bench at the side of Walgreens in Covington. Just wanting to confirm what she was telling me, after we parted ways, I walked over to West 10th Street. Sure enough, the building is condemned. So is 24 West 10th Street which is also an apartment building. Both buildings have signs posted to the front windows.
Tenants were be out of both buildings by the 13 of this month, but apparently that time has been extended to the 3rd of May.
The buildings have been declared not fit for habitation, something I always suspected when I lived in that area.
I do have some friends who still live in my old building (no many), and I feel bad that they’re going to have to find a new place to live in a hurry. I feel lucky that I’m long gone and out.
My experience at my old address needs to be told in it’s entirety. Beleive it or not, dear friends, you haven’t heard the whole story yet. That will be coming soon in a CityBeat article.
I find myself thinking about Cat Lady. What in the hell is she going to do with her six cats?
