1,800 Authentic Antique Bricks up for Grabs in Fort Greene

    by

    Reader Jeff Edwards wants you to take his bricks:

    We are looking to donate about 1,800 antique red bricks that comprised the original rear wall of our 1853 Italianate townhouse on Cumberland Street in Fort Greene, Brooklyn. They would be ideal to resurface a garden wall or build a flower bed. Please reach out to me if you are interested. First come first served.

    Update: Jeff just got in touch to say he got “tons of responses” and the bricks have found a new home. If you have a neighborhood or home-related announcement, send it to barbara@brownstoner.com
