The Condition of a Bove Brothers Property, Monarch Apartments in Essex, Vt


I wanted to share some photos I took over the winter of Monarch Apartments in Essex, VT, owned by the Boves. Residents told me that the place always looks like this – trash strewn, often left for months on end. Used needles were found both outside and inside, around play structures, making it hard for children to be left alone, whether it be to play inside or out. Tenants told me these problems were like this for months before I showed up.

In the words of one single mother, “They’re [children] not allowed to go play, run around, do anything. They’re prisoners. We all are.”

Bove’s Pasta Sauce claims to be a family-friendly business, but does this look family friendly to you?
