I received this message from a Riverside reader. Anyone who could help out, let me know and I’ll put you in contact.
I heard a story last week about a local man and I have been trying to think of how to help him and I thought you might be able to help with your knowledge of local real estate.
There is an elderly couple in Cos Cob who had their house rendered unlivable by the storm a few weeks ago. The husband is a crossing guard at Riverside school so I see him every day. They have been living with his son but apparently he needs to find a local, furnished rental until his house can be repaired. I couldn’t ask why he can’t stay with his son as he started to get choked up telling me about how hard it has been.
So, if you know of a local rental, especially one where the owners would be willing to take a below market rent (maybe a carriage house or apartment above a garage) it would be a very good deed for these nice people.
UPDATE: Reader JJ reports that local family has put them up. That’s great.
