A Colorful Past
The Alberta Studios building had gone through many transformations and has a history as colorful as the Alberta Arts neighborhood. Building co-owner Mike N. tells tales of drive-by shootings, police meth raids, and deliberate arson incidents in the neighborhood. Those harrowing days are a distant memory, and NE Alberta St. now hosts a vibrant community of restaurants, cafes, and boutiques.
