I’ve gotta admit that I didn’t have high hopes for 1076 Bedford, but it looks a lot better than I expected. I like the color and the design on the balconies. I’m not in love with those open spaces on the third, fourth and fifth floors–it looks like the balconies should’ve been extended like [...]
LPC first surveyed Bed-Stuy in the 1970s, resulting in the creation of the Stuyvesant Heights Historic District in 1973.

People always complain about Fulton Street, so I took some pics of a few things I like about it:
Awesome cheap skirts imported from who knows where.
Colorful striped shirts for male shoppers, too.

Within the last month, there has been a flurry of activity and renovations. Updates include an unknown type of unit installed on the roof and [...]

Last month, we inquired about this commercial space at 480 Halsey Street (at Lewis Avenue), which was available for some time. Is it possible this is now rented? A week ago, the security shutters were up and workers were feverishly clearing out the main floor and storing items in the basement. I was [...]
The Brooklyn Public Library Macon Branch (361 Lewis Avenue at Macon Street) recently got a good brick exterior cleaning. The library will remain closed for the next few weeks for repairs and window installations and is scheduled to reopen on Monday, August 2nd.
Some of our readers sent in photos of an apartment that they are trying to rent. It is a duplex in a limestone, and it is very, very nice! It’s perfect for a family or two people who need space to work from home. If you’re looking for a space, hop on this [...]
100 Ralph Avenue is the four story building on the right with the construction lumber surrounding it. From observation, the building has been fully renovated and will be used as rental apartments, including the first floor. For those who may be interested in doing some sleuthing, the owner’s contact information is 544 Park Avenue in [...]
