Apartment Names

I love it when apartment buildings have names. Is it me or are there fewer and fewer these days?

Here is a batch of named buildings I have photographed to date.


The Park West runs along Lincoln, behind Andronico's:

Saint Anne's is nearby:


The Parkview Apartments even have a shield above the entrance:



Bonus 1970's tile, doors, and yellow glass at the Parkway Apartments on 10th & Lincoln:


And the best for last. The Sunset Apartments at 8th & Irving.

Do you have pics of "Sunset Village"?

If not, I'll post my slightly grainy shots.

Don't forget...dang, I can't remember the name of the building, I think it is the "Alexa." It's on 5th and Lincoln.

There''s also Parkway Terrace at the corner of 29th and Lincoln...looks like a converted home that was actually given the name prior to the conversion which makes it even more interesting.
