June was super sweet, but the facility was very unpleasant. Our apartment was dusty, hot, dirty, old, crammed with odd furniture and bric-a-brac, windows that didn't stay open, no internet, leftover opened food, musty bedding, and a strong, stale smell of cigarettes as the elevator door opened onto other floors.

This is the building in Whittier where just about all of the people in Whittier live. A very interesting place to visit. Store, Post Office and everything is in the building.
