LAST WEEK’S ANSWER

The window in last week’s clue is on 9 Willow Street. This building was once owned by Boston University and city permits indicate that it was used as a dormitory. In 1936, after an appeal process, it was converted from a dorm to 16 apartments. In 1982, occupancy was reduced to 15 homes, and then to 14 when it was converted to condominiums in 1986.
