In 1887, this odd numbered side of Jay Street between Willoughby and Fulton streets had a row of six brownstone row houses on it. They took up all the lots on the block except for the corner lots on Willoughby and Fulton.

It’s been our dream for years to buy and renovate a Brooklyn brownstone. The tree-lined streets with charming 19th century architecture. The rows of stoops ready for a coffee in the morning or a glass of wine in the afternoon.

The first Brooklyn location for pastry purveyor Amy’s Bread opened this week in Brooklyn Heights.
