Humboldt Park's Casa Puertorriqueña up for sale
A Humboldt Park landmark is under the risk of closing. La Casa Puertorriqueña is one of the well-known buildings in the neighborhood and now the building owners have put it up for sale.
It’s described as a lifeline for residents of Humboldt Park. The building on California Avenue is where community members come for opportunities.
Senior activities, meals for the homeless, job resources are just a few things being offered. Right now, building owners have placed this building for sale and the community's largest fear is that some developer might buy the land.
Theresa Siaw, a devoted community member, is hosting a 12-hour fundraiser today to prevent the building from closing. The fundraiser will start at 10 a.m. until 10 p.m.
