Thanks to the GPS in your car or on your smart phone, telling people how to get to your home has never been easier. That's unless, of course, you live in a Brookhaven apartment building.

Residents like Margaret Apgar say no one can find her building on Glenway Drive. That's because the satellite technology that helps our high-tech gadgets find our destinations hasn't quite caught up to the apartment building that has been in existence for nearly a decade.

You can watch the story in the video above.
