Tenants living in a house owned by a prominent Brooklyn family say their landlords harassed them and attempted to illegally evict them from their Crown Heights townhouse.
This 1870s brownstone has had a recent reno that burnished some original details, added some that had vanished over time and incorporated some modern upgrades. Located at 374 Vanderbilt Avenue, it’s at the edge of the Fort Green Historic District.
With the news this week that a Brooklyn Heights street was shutdown so Matt Damon and his family could move into The Standish, the 2018 Brownstoner story about the purchase was popular with readers looking for background.
The photo-ready facade of this 19th century carriage house hides a surprisingly spacious and modern interior. Set on one of the scenic cul-de-sacs of Brooklyn Heights, 32 College Place is an atmospheric rental for anyone able to afford the pricey monthly tab.
Filled with original details like wainscoting, stained glass and built-ins, this early 20th century house also has space to offer, both inside and out. Located in the Prospect Lefferts Gardens Historic District at 74 Lincoln Road, the detached house has outdoor space, a wraparound porch, garage and multiple bedrooms in which to spread out.
