If you have the cash, this is a nice opportunity to get a house on Liberty Street north of Broadway. It needs to be gutted and there are little to no historic details. However, I suspect this section of Liberty between Broadway and First will be one of the first sections of northern Liberty to turn around. I’ve documented the reasons why many times but to mention them again: the Broadway/Liberty Street intersection will be seeing major changes in the next year with a community park and rehabilitation of 96 Broadway. Across the street is 188 Liberte and around the corner is Quality Row. The homes there are consistently owner-occupied by progressive residents. Dutch artist, Paulien Lethen, just moved there. I’ve heard she has some exciting plans.
