Old North, Revisited Winter 2022, Sullivan Avenue Between Blair Avenue and North Fourteenth Street

I’ve apparently never photographed this section of Sullivan Avenue between Blair Avenue and North Fourteenth Street.

There’s a wide variety of architectural styles, and for the most part, while there are some vacant lots allowing long views to the backs of other buildings, the street wall is intact.

But the Second Empire architecture is really stunning, in particular.

There are two families and duplexes, right next to each other. The building below is actually a four family now.

And also free standing single family houses.

Turning north on North Fourteenth Street, there are more multi-family housing.

The red brick glows in the morning light.

Unfortunately some of the buildings are abandoned.

Ironically, this four family is newer than the occupied houses nearby.

    1413-15 Sullivan is actually a 4-family! Two apartments on the lower level and two, two-story apartments above.

          Yup, 5th down. It was originally a CDA affordable housing project that went into foreclosure when my neighbors purchased it. That was years ago now.
