Taking Sides

The West Highlanders in attendance at Harvey Gelb's meeting met again the following week at Karen Jackson's. According to Karen Jackson, the agenda for the meeting “was to find ways to legally guarantee that the neighbors' concerns about Chaver would be recognized and acted upon.” By the end of the meeting, however, it became clear to everybody involved, including Emery Schmidt and Mark Johnson, who were invited to attend the last half of the gathering, that some of the neighbors, as Karen Jackson angrily noted, “actually only came to organize in opposition to Chaver!” Karen Jackson's would be the last Near Neighbor meeting at which the neighbors were unified, and, as Emery Schmidt later remarked, the first that gave him and Mark Johnson “a real taste of the trouble to come.”


The Birth of the Elder Homes Neighborhood Association

Harvey Gelb left Karen Jackson's recognizing that he “would have to work fast in order to make certain that the neighbors who were moving in support of Chaver and the Lutherans did not get to other neighbors before [he] did.” He also “couldn't believe how naive, ” his neighbors were: “What was Jonathan Shapiro thinking! You can't negotiate with these people. As Schmidt told [the neighbors] at Karen's, there was no way to include written guarantees in the CON. And even if they do put their promises to the neighborhood in some form of written document, believe me, there are always loopholes, always!”
