Victorian Bronx Building Make Way for New Affordable Housing

At the corner of Boston Road and E. 179th Street in The Bronx, an early 1900s building that once provided free housing to older women of modest means will soon make way for a new low income housing development. This building, at 2064 Boston Road in West Farms, was originally the Peabody Home for Aged and Indigent Women. It was a private charity that provided free accommodation for 35 women.
