highrise


There are very few tall buildings in Saint John. Aside from a cluster of office buildings uptown, I think this large apartment building in the North End is next in terms of height. I have lived in an apartment building that looked much like this. Ours was only seven storeys, and we had a large corner apartment with a nice view. But you couldn’t regulate the heat, so the windows had to stay open all year round. And the corridors were dark and narrow, and often smelled bad. And a drug addict would occasionally break into the laundry rooms and tip over the machines to get at the change inside. There were a lot of stories in that multi-storey building, and a lot of people with long memories who had lived there for many years. We didn’t stay long.
