SOUTH BEND – Marguerite Taylor has lived in the Northeast Neighborhood all her life. She said the area including Georgiana, Napoleon and Duey streets was a place people used to avoid.
That's not the case anymore.
A place where you'd once find abandoned homes – condos are now for sale. Streets that people used to avoid are busy with walkers, diners and people enjoying the neighborhood.
No longer a shell of its former self, the area known as the Triangle between State Road 23 and Eddy Street Commons is experiencing a renaissance – especially with the development of 52 brand new single-family homes.
"Within the city limits, this is unique," said Tim Sexton, president of the Northeast Neighborhood Revitalization organization. "It's exciting, it's really exciting."
