Common Room


Apartments are equipped with a garbage disposal. Some disposals are activated by inserting the disposal cover (kitchen sink stopper) in the position specified in the directions on the handle of the disposal cover; others are activated by flipping the nearby wall switch. Disposals are not designed to process large amounts of peels (potato, carrot, and other types of foods with peels) and should not be used for fibrous foods (i.e., celery, corn cobs or husks).

Laundry Facilities

  • Coin- and Crimson Cash-operated washers and dryers are available for use in the laundry room on the first floor next to the freight elevator. The main building elevator will not take you to the laundry room – you need to go to the second floor and walk towards apartment 218, then take the stairs or the rear elevator to the first floor.
  • We request that these facilities not be used outside of the hours of 8:00 AM—10:00 PM, as, in many instances, occupied apartments are located directly above the laundry area.
  • The laundry room is equipped with  Mac-Gray’s Laundry View service, which allows you to check the real time availability of washers and dryers. Please be courteous and remove your laundry from machines promptly when washing or drying is complete.

Note: Machines may not be able to accommodate certain items. If you experience any problems with the machines, please report them to Mac-Gray Laundry, 1-800-622-4729. To reduce your laundry’s environmental impact, Mac-Gray recommends only washing full loads on the cold water cycle. See cleanandgreenvision.com for more sustainable laundry tips.
