I’m quite excited that this property has been newly presented with proper interior photographs. I have always thought that this home had a lot of potential as it is quite different from neighboring homes. Even though it was evident that the property had suffered severe damage, you could never see inside till now. The only the original that remains is the staircase and perhaps the front door. Everything has has been totally gutted and wiped clean. If you have the cash, this is an excellent location to consider a total rehab. There are about 4 other homes on this immediate block for sale. It is a great opportunity for revitalization work to happen collectively on this block of Liberty Street between Broadway and First Street.
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. Also, I was able to come across a historical photo below so you can see what Liberty Street looked like about 80 years ago.

I love that historic photo, thanks for sharing it. Beautifully brick paved street. Second floor of the house had beautiful curved glass windows, too bad those got replaced. I know where to find some if the new owner wants to restore them! 😉
What a beauty!!!! If i had 58k lying around, I’d jump on it.
