Yesterday NYCHA announced which buildings still do not have electricity, heat or hot water restored. So far NYCHA has assessed all of its properties in the city and while it found no significant structural damage anywhere, more than half of the buildings were flooded in the boiler or electrical meter rooms. Still without electricity are 36 buildings and 3,434 units in Brooklyn; 61 buildings and 5,564 units in the borough are still without heat. This includes buildings in Brighton Beach without electricity or power. NYCHA has restored heat and power at the Gowanus Houses. And many of the buildings in the Red Hook Houses still are without both heat and electricity. NYCHA has been acquiring back-up generators and temporary boilers but has not given a timeline when all the power and electricity will be back. “We are working to address these issues as quickly as possible,” the organization announced. Yesterday the New York Daily News reported specifically on the issues and frustrations at the Red Hook Houses, pictured above.

The listing says it’s “fully functioning and awaiting your cosmetic upgrades.” It’s in the northeast corner of Bed Stuy near Broadway and the Gates stop. How do you like it and the […]
This three-bedroom condo at 1 Montgomery Place in Park Slope is very impressive. The 2,624-square-foot duplex has been carved out of a former mansion and includes a 750-square-foot private garden. The layout is much more generous than what you’d find in a typical brownstone and there are lots of original details. Asking price: $2,650,000. 1 […]
This nicely renovated three-bedroom in Crown Heights seems like a good value. The living room is well-sized, and its three windows help open up the room. That framed exposed brick behind the drywall is interesting too. The kitchen looks narrow, but the appliances are brand new and the island offers additional counter space. There are […]
It looks like the foundation is going in for a five-story building at 588 Myrtle on the corner of Classon. The lot has been empty since the previous owners demolished a three-story house in 2007. We first reported on potential development here way back in 2008, and there have been a few aborted development plans […]
