He will remember just about the time I think he has forgotten all about it.
This building was rehabbed about fifteen years ago. Maintenance has NEVER done any work on any of the windows unless a screen falls off or someone breaks the glass. It is really hard to break the glass in these windows. We call them airport windows. Airport management installed soundproof windows in this building when they were rehabbing it. They are double paned with very thick glass. Once Spike has put the Teflon spray on the tracks, I will be able to open and close them very easily. Some of the tenants can't open their windows at all. And the tenants that have apartments on the south end of the building get full sun all day long. Sometimes the temp in their apartments goes over the 100 mark. The end of this month the AC will be turned on.
