The Mildred

 

Built around 1925, The Mildred is located at 925 Union Street in the Park Slope section of Brooklyn; half a block from the main branch of the Brooklyn Public Library & Prospect Park. 

The Brooklyn Museum of Art, The Brooklyn Botanical Gardens, the Prospect Park Zoo, and the Park Slope Food Coop are a few blocks away. 
The Mildred is convenient to the Grand Army Plaza stop on the 2 & 3 IRT Broadway subway lines as well as the 7th Avenue stop on the B & D BMT lines. 

The spacious lobby contrasts with the size of the mostly  one bedroom apartments. 
Mrs. Rossi, the oldest resident of the Mildred that I met once told me that in the good old days, the lobby had fancy furniture and Oriental rugs. 
The Mildred fell into disrepair in the late 1960's and early 1970s and was converted to a cooperative by the last landlord in 1984. 
Located on a busy block in a great neighborhood, The Mildred has become a very nice, though not a pretentious place to call home.

Thanks for stopping by.
