condominiums. Gibbs plays Mary Jenkins, a no-nonsense housewife. Mary's
construction supervisor husband, Lester, is a caring,
dependable father to their teenage daughter, Brenda.
Mary's best friend is Rose Lee Holloway, a gossipy
widow. The two pals love to sit on the stoop and discuss their lives.and
the lives of anyone else who happens to wander by. Sandra Clark is the building's resident vamp, a sashaying mantrap whose
haughty attitude often sets her at odds with down-to-earth Mary. Pearl
Shay is an elderly busybody who observes all of 227's
comings and goings from her perch at the window of her first floor
apartment. Rounding out the building's principal residents are Calvin, Pearl's seventeen year-old grandson (and Brenda's
boyfriend), and Rose's daughter Tiffany.
