Description

It is the Grand Concourse's grandest building, a broad limestone palazzo set back behind a wide grassy lawn between 166th and McClellan Streets in the Bronx. But the building, paid for by the somewhat mysterious Andrew Freedman, is not a mansion or a museum. It is a home for the elderly, and it has an unusual history. The 1924 building, the Andrew Freedman Home, operated by the Mid-Bronx Senior Citizens Council, has its own signs of age, and of rejuvenation.
