An affordable housing lottery has opened for 20 newly constructed units in an eight-story building at 212 Hegeman Avenue, between Watkins Street and Mother Gaston Boulevard, in Brownsville.
In the last decade, more than 250 luxury condo buildings went up in Brooklyn, bringing thousands of units to the borough and dramatically altering its character.
Do you envision yourself gliding dramatically through grand, lushly ornamented spaces as you host parties worthy of the style of Gilded Age?
Perhaps you live in an historic house with perfectly intact, never-painted wood. You can just leave it be, or gently clean it with a rag dipped into water with a squirt of Ivory liquid soap.
