Sometimes called the "architect's ghetto," Lortondale was established to provide quality, stylish homes at affordable prices. A new home with modern amenities could be purchased for about $14,000 and $100 down. Creative types such as architects, engineers, artists, designers and musicians flocked to the community, and it's still just as hip half a century later. Homes have natural light, texture, open living spaces and clean lines.
The Lortondale Neighborhood spans from 26th Street to 27th Place between Yale Avenue and Hudson Avenue.
