Check out this Flickr feed of the ongoing demolition at 834-836 Halsey Street. The badly damaged yellow home on the left, 836 Halsey Street, is totally gone at this point. But as for 834 Halsey Street, our tipster wonders: “It looks [like] they are trying to save 834. There appears what looks like some sort of stabilizing feature being introduced into the building from top to bottom. I am not an architect or structural engineer, but it is obvious that this — as well as weatherproofing on the north side of the house — is taking place (where 836 had connected to it).” You can see a detailed image of the new siding on 834 Hasley here. The DOB has not issued a demolition permit on the property but there is a full vacate order. So it looks like No. 834 may be renovated and saved, meaning there will be no five-plot empty lot here, as we previously speculated.

It’s rare to find a decent-sized prewar two-bedroom apartment in Brooklyn Heights for under a million bucks these days, so this co-op at the St. George Tower on Hicks and Clark asking $950,000 might strike someone’s fancy. It’s not huge and it doesn’t feel as vintage as some prewar fans might want, but it’s on […]
This renovated studio for rent in a Kensington co-op is bright white, new looking and relatively spacious. The L-shaped apartment has a bunch of white built-in wall units that offer tons of storage but give the space a somewhat clinical (or very modern) look. Those little built-in tables in the living area could function as […]
A real estate firm named JEMB Realty bought a parking lot in downtown Brooklyn for $38,464,188. If that seems like a staggering amount to pay for a parking lot, well, it’s located at 420-428 Albee Square, right across the street from City Point.
