WHEN YOU MOVE TO THE HEATHERS ESTATES,
YOU NEVER HAVE TO MOVE AGAIN

The longevity of Heathers Estates residents is legendary. Note. I am not talking about how old these residents are, but how long they have lived at The Heathers Estates. It is a testimonial to the great living atmosphere that encourages social activities. Each of the women pictured have lived in this apartment building for more than thirty (30) years. They all moved in, some with their husbands, when the building was known as “Lamplighter Apartments”. When Lang Nelson bought the building, they were happy that a property management company, rather than an individual, had made the investment.
The reasons they chose Lamplighter then, and the reasons they choose to stay now are dissimilar. The reason Elaine, Phyllis, and Bev moved in was mostly location; close to Sonnesyn school, close to work at Pako, close to friends. Lea said she and her husband moved because of the indoor pool. Phyllis said she wanted a dishwasher and many apartment buildings did not have dishwashers then.
The quotable reasons they have stayed all these years: “This is home”. “Can’t imagine living anywhere else”. “Lang Nelson keeps up the building”. “I love my courtyard apartment”. “It’s convenient and close to shopping and synagogue”. And, not surprisingly after more than 30 years, “it’s too much work to move”. The one consistent reason that they stay is the people who live here, their neighbors and friends. Some said all of their friends are here at the Heathers. That’s because they themselves are good friends and neighbors to all the other residents of The Heathers Estates.
