We love the Arts & Crafts details in this landmarked brownstone at 292 Sterling Street, particularly the tile fireplace and inglenook. (That room, by the way, would have been called a “hall” back in the day; the room labelled “den” on the floor plan is the dining room.) The one-family, two-story house appears to be well maintained, and the boiler, furnace and roof were replaced in the last few years, according to the listing. It’s walking distance to Prospect Park too. There is an additional apartment on the basement level that is not shown in the floor plan; the house does not appear to be bound by the one-family covenant of Lefferts Manor, although it is part of the Prospect Lefferts Gardens Historic District. What do you think of it for $880,000?

By the 1870s, speculative building in the city’s neighborhoods began earnest, as the rows of Italianate, Neo-Grec and Second Empire houses began defining the neighborhoods radiating out from Downtown. Those were heady […]
Every winter for the past five years, the Brooklyn Flea has moved indoors in December. For the past few years, the market’s been at One Hanson. This year, however, we’ve set up shop in a new 50,000-square-foot space at North 5th and Wythe Avenue in Williamsburg. There are about 125 flea vendors there to satisfy […]
The building that we said does not look like any other going up in Williamsburg is now leasing, as Curbed was the first to note. While the outside has giant cornices and touches of rusty Corten steel, the inside features repurposed old beams and exposed brick. Every unit has floor to ceiling windows and a […]
After Community Board Six’s land use committee rejected Methodist Hospital’s expansion proposal, the medical center has gone back to the drawing board to come up with a more pleasing plan. To give the hospital more time, the community board has put off the date of its vote with the full board on the plan until […]
