If you have driven around Liberty Street in the Washington Heights area, then you probably have passed this building. According to the listing there are three apartments and the storefront. This building is not necessarily on a section of Liberty Street that will see a resurgence the quickest. But, it is next to some interesting vacant factory buildings (Resnick Mattress Factory) that if ever developed, would put this property in an ideal spot. It’s also in front of an empty lot adjacent to Washington’s Headquarters that perhaps could also see development one day.
Make sure to find out if the city is still offering the facade grant to fix exteriors. It would be great to see this property brought back to historic accuracy to add character to the neighborhood. Also, check out the transformation of 19 Liberty Street (just on other side of the factory) and 12 Liberty Street.
