Kari and Vien moved up a few floors recently. First, the couple lived in a studio apartment on the third floor of this building for about a year and half. But now they occupy a light-filled one-bedroom unit on the 12th floor (with a balcony!). They admit they're lucky to live in this amazing location: "We are in the Village View Coop residences that are a part of the Mitchell Lama program, so we got this via lottery housing."
