Venerable Mansard-Roofed Building in Bed Stuy Demolished to Make Way for New Build


We’re sad to report that the prominent and quite old wood frame at the corner of Throop and Pulaski in Bed Stuy is now nothing but a bunch of debris. The mansard-roofed house at 330 Throop Avenue stood three stories tall and was built sometime before 1873. It was configured as a three-family and sat on a double lot that measures 45 by 85 feet. It was also a Building of the Day a year ago.

A new building application disapproved in July called for a four-story, eight unit residential building with about 5,000 square feet of space. We’re sorry to see this one go, because it was one of the oldest homes in the area and attractive despite alterations over the years. Below is a photo of what it used to look like. Unfortunately, the property is not in any of the landmark districts.
