Red Oak Apartments

Welcome to Red Oak Apartments! When WSFSSH was developing its first building, the Marseilles, it quickly became apparent that one building was only a start to meeting the need for safe senior housing on the Upper West Side. In early 1978, founding board member Leah Schneider identified a vacant lot on 106th Street between Amsterdam and Columbus as a possible site for a second WSFSSH building. She knew that it was the site of a former nursing home and that it continued to be owned by the Little Sisters of the Poor. WSFSSH located the Little Sisters’ attorneys and entered into discussion with them. While no one from WSFSSH ever met any of the Sisters, they learned that the Sisters believed that senior housing on the site would be a wonderful use of their property and an extension of their mission. On October 28, 1980, the order sold the extensive property to WSFSSH for $350,000. WSFSSH has continued to try to be faithful to that mission of serving low income elderly persons ever since.
