    A Brownstoner reader in Bed Stuy owns a non-landmarked brownstone, but previous owners painted over the stone itself on the home’s facade. They want to know, is it possible to strip the paint and restore the stone to its original condition?

    Commenters suggest it can be done but is likely an expensive job. What’s the best route to take here? Share your thoughts below.
