After 21 years in Brooklyn, Chris Arnade, the Wall Street trader turned photographer known for his sometimes-controversial photos of people in places like East New York and Brownsville, is moving to the Bronx. He’s written a long-form narrative love letter to our borough in the form of a list for the Awl, “Some Things I Will Miss About Brooklyn.”

Some things that made the list: Pigeon keepers of Bushwick and East New York, Floyd Bennett Field, Sunset Park’s Soccer Tavern (a bar). But the article isn’t really about these physical places, it’s about the people and communities of Brooklyn. It’s worth a read. What would you miss?

475 sterling place crown heights 82014

We know Crown Heights is getting trendy, but the asking rent on this three-bedroom, two-bath condo near the Prospect Heights border seems like a stretch. But the 1,736-square-foot pad is large and modern with big floor-to-ceiling windows. It also has a sizable private terrace and a washer/dryer. The building features a part-time doorman, gym, common roof deck and shared garden. Do you think it’ll fly for $4,750 a month?
