House of the Day: 245 Greene Avenue


How much for a shell with a beautiful exterior and a few bits of architectural salvage thrown in? We’re asking because we suspect that’s all that remains of this once glorious 1890s brick and brownstone building located at 245 Greene Avenue in Clinton Hill. In fact, it might not even be a full shell if the walls have to rebuilt.

The Romanesque Revival building is landmarked. In fact, the 1981 designation report mentions that it was empty and sealed up even back then. In the 1970s, it was owned by the city, and then it passed to a private owner in 1984, who sold it in April to an LLC for $950,000. Now the ask is $1,995,000. What do you think of it?
