In a major boon for researchers, New York City history aficionados and old building lovers, the New York City Department of Records & Information Services has released a treasure trove of visual material online.
Located in a four-story, eight-unit walkup, this compact third-floor two-bedroom at 656 Carroll Street with an above-average renovation may stir the hearts of parents eager for a Park Slope address and room to squeeze in a family for not much above $1 million (what passes for affordable these days).
This week, all of our open house picks are over $1 million. Three appear to be in move-in condition, one needs work and all of them are located in Bed Stuy.
It’s hard to argue with the minimalist luxuriousness and expansiveness of Barrett Design’s 96 Degraw Street, designed by an architecture firm that, unusually, plays a dual role as the developer.
While we were hunting for our brownstone to renovate, we also looked at some recently renovated buildings, mostly by developers. The trend is to tear down walls and open up the entire parlor level floor with a huge slider leading to a deck. Sounds nice to us.
