Tree-lined streets, 19th-century brownstones, ease and convenience to Manhattan — welcome to Bed Stuy. With destination restaurants, galleries, and upscale boutiques, it’s no surprise that Bed Stuy has shown itself to be a wise place for homeowners to invest. If you’re looking to live in this historic neighborhood but want the modern amenities of a new development condo, then you should take a look at 159 Tompkins.
With its clean grey-brick facade, 10-foot floor-to-ceiling windows that let in an abundance of natural light, graciously sized living/dining and bedrooms, hidden heat and cooling, and a plethora of amenities, this boutique condominium development has raised the bar for new construction in the neighborhood.
There is oak flooring throughout, custom cabinetry in the kitchens and bathrooms, Caesarstone counters and stainless steel appliances. All units have a balcony, terrace or garden, as well as washer-dryer units.
With a total of 10 spacious units, the building has on-site storage and bicycle rooms as well as limited onsite parking. The rooftop deck offers space for hosting large gatherings with enviable views of Brooklyn and the Manhattan skyline.
Nearby playgrounds and parks include the Frederick Law Olmsted-designed Herbert Von King Park, which offers the perfect place for an evening stroll or somewhere for the kids to play. Local nightlife favorites include Marcy & Myrtle, Peaches Hot House, and Black Swan.
Known for its well-preserved 19th-century streetscapes, Bed Stuy has three landmarked districts and is a frequent winner of the Greenest Block in Brooklyn contest.
Transportation is top-notch too. The A, C, G, 2, 3, 4 and 5 lines are nearby, and with numerous bus routes you’re into Manhattan in a flash; and if public transport is not your thing, there is also a Citi Bike station at Dekalb Avenue.
