Original Paragraph:

Built in 1968, Potomac Gardens Apartments is a public housing project owned by the District of Columbia Housing Authority. The complex is located at 1225 G Street SE,  just thirteen blocks southeast of the United States Capitol Building. The 352 units that make up the complex are divided into family and senior housing. The large, run-down, and bleak looking building houses low income families and a large senior population. It would be easy to walk past Potomac Gardens writing it off as just another old building in need of fresh paint, but there is more to the building that what first meets the eye. Potomac Gardens Apartments has a rich history filled with violence and controversy.
