87 Pitt Street, Redfern. Sydney, New South Wales

The three storey terrace at 87 Pitt Street (with what appears to be a small fourth storey attic later added) is right in the centre of an eastern Redfern area which is being increasingly gentrified.  Pitt Street features a long row of two storey terraces culminating in this end terrace at the corner of Redfern Street.
