The Carpenters apartment in Downey, California is on Downey Avenue. When Harold and Agnes Carpenter moved their family from New Haven, Connecticut out to Downey, California in 1963 they first stayed in the former Shoji Apartments. Not having sold their home back east they stayed in this complex to save money, first in #22, then in #23. When the home finally sold they moved to a house on Fidler Street, which no longer stands. The apartments are now called the Pinecrest Apartments.
