Fourth Annual List Honors Brooklyn, Denver, and New Orleans
Plus: ThisOldHouse.com Lists the 64 Best Old-House Neighborhoods, One in Every State, the District of Columbia, 12 Canadian Cities, and One Town in Puerto Rico
New York, NY (Tuesday, March 1, 2011) – The editors of This Old House magazine have tracked down 64 great neighborhoods that have promising futures, strong communities, and homes that truly deserve a long-term commitment. The Best Old-House Neighborhoods appear in the April issue, on newsstands March 11th, and online at www.thisoldhouse.com/best-places.
This Old House scoured the United States, Canada, and Puerto Rico to find unique, tight-knit neighborhoods for their fourth annual search for the Best Old-House Neighborhoods. These places might not be on your radar, but deserve to be, according to the magazine’s editors.
This Old House magazine (p. 52) and thisoldhouse.com feature 64 great spots that fit the criteria of old-house neighborhoods – architectural diversity, craftsmanship of the homes, and the preservation momentum in the area as well as neighborhood amenities including walkability, safety and community. With the help of PreservationDirectory.com, neighborhood groups, real estate agents, and preservation societies, This Old House compiled their list of the best places to track down, fix up, and fall head over heels for. The winning neighborhoods are also divided into categories such as Best for Bargains, Best for Urbanities, Best for Waterfront Views, and more. The National Association of REALTORS®, the voice of real estate, is the sponsor of the 2011 Best Old-House Neighborhoods list.
