Brooklyn’s first J.Crew is coming to Cobble Hill — specifically, the two-story building at 151 Court Street, near Pacific.

There is no word on the move-in date, but J.Crew joins several other chains like Trader Joe’s, Urban Outfitters, Barneys Co-Op, and Armani Exchange in the neighborhood — although J.Crew has long been rumored to have been eyeing space in Williamsburg. It appears the popular greengrocer on the corner, Pacific Green, will have to move.

Although obviously in need of work to turn it into living space, this has got to be one of the coolest properties for sale we’ve ever seen. There’s tons of curb appeal (or will be, pending a fresh paint job), beamed ceilings, arched windows and doors, diagonal floors and three skylights in this seemingly untouched […]
This large one-bedroom co-op at The Griffin in Fort Greene just hit the market with an asking price of $749,000. It’s a nice apartment on the eighth floor with good light and views as well as solid prewar credentials. We’d guess that this would have to be some kind of price record for a one-bedroom […]
