An email from a friend…
Do you know anyone on the hill who might have a 1-BR space to rent to a stable but low-income couple who are losing their long-time Capitol Hill rental (condo conversion). They could pay about $775, maybe a little more. You may have seen this couple around the Hill on their bikes (no car)…he’s 77 yrs old and plays piano at the Victrola on Saturdays (as well as at nursing homes and such places; she’s French, (about 48 years old) also a musician, performs at various places around town (Cafe Campagne, Crepes de Paris, Maximilien’s, etc), does French tutoring, ran the French Cultural Center next to the Deluxe for several years. They are both very community-oriented and are kind of fixtures around the hill; they would very much like to stay here, where they have lived for decades… but you know how prices are here.
If you know of anyone with some rentable yet affordable space, could you please let me know?
If you have a lead on an apartment on Capitol Hill, let us know in comments.
