To renovate or not to renovate: you can have it either way with this weekend’s open house picks. Two are move-in ready and two require work, and no small amount of it. Made of limestone, brownstone and brick, they’re found in Bed Stuy, Park Slope and Marine Park.
An affordable housing lottery has opened for 22 units at a long-in-the-works 21-story tower in Downtown Brooklyn. Located at 237 Duffield Street, the red-brick building will house 110 apartments and stores not far from City Point. It shares a block with Hotel Indigo and a Civil War-era townhouse.
Here’s a Bed Stuy brownstone that’s newly and nicely gut renovated, with some original details and a classic feel. It’s on the neighborhood’s northern end, at 635 Willoughby Avenue, between Tompkins and Throop.
