While touring a waterfront home for sale in Fort Lauderdale situated along the Nu River in the Sailboat Bend neighborhood, my eye caught a bit of history.  From the dock I could see hovering above the Nu River, the Snow-Reed Fort Lauderdale swing bridge spanning nearly 150 feet connecting the two Southwest Fort Lauderdale deep waterfront neighborhoods of Sailboat Bend and Riverside Park.  

The SW 11th Ave (Palm Ave) bridge as it is known today, is the oldest operating metal truss swing bridge in the state of Florida.  Originally built in 1924-1925 replacing the single lane hand-cranked version built in 1916.  The bridge tender would actually have to manually crank and turn the bridge to accomodate

View from condo for sale in Lauderdale by the Sea, FloridaWhile showing condos for sale in Lauderdale by the Sea, I was pleasantly surprised to find an oceanfront condo directly on the sand and priced for sale under $300,000.  Yes, the condo needs a complete renovation.... but, 2 bedrooms, on the sand and under $300,000 in a real estate market with very limited inventory! This is a gem waiting to be polished.

The unit faces west, so you don't have direct ocean views, but you can see the ocean from the very large covered terrace as well as from both bedrooms. You do however, have a stunning direct view of the Intracoastal Waterway, and at night; when lit up, it is magical.  

A very spacious condo with just under 1,300 square feet of interior living space offering a split bedroom plan.  All windows and a glass

A recent article in the Sun-Sentinel reported the city of Fort Lauderdale is considering changes to Las Olas Blvd to improve traffic for both pedestrians and drivers.

Consultants have suggested "better signalization, fewer lanes, more visible crosswalks, bike lanes and wider sidewalks."

At a public forum this past week, some
