Sometime around 2004, the house was subdivided into four apartments, with the addition of kitchens on the second floors of both sides of the house. Windows on the rear of the house were replaced with doors to provide additional egresses, and fire escapes were added. The mechanicals, however, were not upgraded: when NINA acquired the property in 2008, the knob-and-tube wiring was still in use.
NINA restored the house to its original use as a two-family home. We also purchased 92 Atwood Street from the City; this property, a substandard lot that directly abutted the rear of the parcel of 235-237 Sargeant Street, was a vacant lot that the City had held onto for years, maybe even decades, and we purchased it to provide off-street parking for our home here.
