I searched the web for news stories about Ivan Shapiro House, looking for signs of problems there. Haven’t found any yet (will keep looking, also trying to contact that community board), but did find these stories about the opening, and a story about a woman who has benefited from living there.
Ivan Shapiro House is at 459 West 46th Street. If anyone passes there in their daily travels, please report on it.
