  1. I worked at the Parklane,beginning in1968.for ten years,and with all of the Goodman family knowledge,I began my work career.If only you know,as I do.

    • David, sorry, maybe i’m repeating this e mail. I am the current owner of the Parklane, and If you would have any information (or know someone that does) as far as photos (interior or exterior) that would be great! It would be nice to speak with you as far as how the building looked back then. Could you call or e mail me: my phone is: 1-262-654-7313. Thanks,Robt

    • Looking for 1 or 2 bedroom for Feb 1. I am a 60 year old female with a small dog moving back to Racine from the Twin Cities after many years. Will you have any vacancies and what is the process?

  2. I lived at the apartments for about 4 years. There was paranormal activity in one corner of the building, though not really hostile or disturbing. My parents at the time were on-site managers, and we got quite a few interesting stories from some of the tenants there, but no one knew much of anything about the older history of the building. I find this quite interesting.
