A senior home in Park Slope will close in 90 days, forcing elderly and frail residents to relocate. Citing a "tax obligation [that] has sky-rocketed" officials at the Prospect Park Residence—named one of the city's 20 best senior homes by New York— announced that the 130-bed facility was "no longer viable" and would be forced to close. However, one family member of a tenant said that officials read from prepared statements and were "vague" when asked follow-up questions. Either way, one thing is certain: there is absolutely no way the facility's prime location overlooking Prospect Park played a role in this decision. No way at all! [DNAinfo]
