4 Grand Prewar (and Even Older) Apartments in the Brownstone Belt Just Dripping in Charm


    There’s nothing like a prewar apartment for sprawl and charm, where the floor plans alone are a delight to the eye and there’s plenty of room to stretch out and entertain.

    These four stunners offer historic charm — from fireplaces to painted ceilings, sun rooms and proper parlors — as well as generous layouts and building perks, not to mention all are primely located.

    The generous layouts include large foyers, winding halls, libraries and the like, not to mention separate dining rooms.

    There is a vast price range, with the most affordable unit asking $925,000 and the most expensive listed for a whopping $4.825 million. The neighborhoods are all in the brownstone belt, with two of the picks in Park Slope, one in Prospect Heights and the other in Brooklyn Heights.

    Each of these homes would suit the likes of any old-school Hollywood charmer.

    Which one would you choose?
