April 2001

The resurgence of Harlem as a residential destination is followed by rapid development in a portion of this once blighted community in Manhattan.

With a housing stock of elegant walkup brownstones, the renovation of this single building spurred the repair of many of the neighboring buildings along West 119th Street.

The city’s housing loan program, 203k, is responsible for the restoration of this and many other three-family projects. An owner’s duplex and two rental units create a stable and secure residential property.
