All of the units offer low monthly carrying costs, individually controlled central heat and air-conditioning, recessed lighting, stainless steel appliances, designer tiles on kitchen countertops and bathroom walls, hardwood floors, excellent natural light and storage spaces. The larger units also feature working fireplaces with granite mantels. Just steps form beautiful Fort Greene Park, BAM, shopping and dining. A, C, G, B, D, Q, M, N, R, 2,3,4,5 subway lines and the Long Island Railroad all within walking distance.
    Fort Greene, with its tree lined blocks of turn-of-the-century townhouses and it’s wealth of cultural institutions, is one of the city’s most dynamic and beautiful neighborhoods. The areas main attraction is also its namesake. Fort Greene Park was designed by Frederick Law Olmsted and Calvert Vaux of Central Park fame. It opened in 1847 on the sight of Fort Putnam where Revolutionary War General Nathanial Greene defended Washington’s army against the British. The thirty acre park is home to tennis courts and playgrounds, and is host to events such as concerts, poetry readings, and other civic gatherings. Fort Greene has been home to artists and writers from Walt Whitman to Spike Lee as well as Professionals and families of all backgrounds and races. This rich mix has made it one of Brooklyn’s hottest neighborhoods and a great place to call home.

    How dare they try and imitate (poorly) a brownstone.

    Default re: project 14 on fulton

    wait, these will be full floor almost 2000 sq ft units?
    are these rental or sales?

  4. #34


    I noticed that too. The ground floor is probably retail but strange fenestration for 1 unit of residential per floor still.

    I remember when Ft Greene was dirty and the projects we're horrifing. How are the projects now? Is this neighborhood gentrifing too?

    They're not too bad, there are far worse in Brooklyn. Many of the occupants seem like hard working people. Too bad they're ugly and so many of them.

    The Ingersoll Houses are getting a makeover though. You've probably seen the thing on Scarano's site. Only problem is the new design is tacky pomo.

    Thumbs up Prison Ship Martyrs Monument

    Prison Ship Martyrs Monument

    The Monument for the Prison Ship Martyrs that stands today in the heart of Fort Greene Park is actually the third incarnation of this sacred memorial. The story of the horrid Prison Ships that were anchored in Wallabout Bay -- and the ghastly conditions suffered by American men, woman & children POWs imprisoned on them during the Revolutionary War -- is one of the most disturbing chapters in American History.

    Long after the war was over, bones of the POWs would regularly wash up along the shores of Brooklyn and Long Island. These bones were collected by Brooklynites with the hopes of creating a permanent resting place for the remains of the brave Prison Ship Martyrs. The first monument was erected in the early 1800s by the Tammany Society of New York. It was located near the Brooklyn Navy Yard waterfront in what is now called Vinegar Hill.

    By the mid-1800s, the original monument was in a state of disrepair and neglect. By 1873 a large stone crypt was constructed in the heart of what is now Fort Greene Park (then called Washington Park), and the bones were re-interred in the crypt. A small monument was erected on the hill above the crypt.

    By the close of the 19th century, funds were finally raised for a grander more fitting monument for the Prison Ship Martyrs. The prestigeous architectural firm of McKim. Meade and White was commissioned to design the large 148 ft. tower which stands today in the park. It was univeiled in 1908 with a grand ribbon-cutting ceremony presided over by President Taft. The monument originally housed a staircase and elevator to the top observation deck, which featured a lighted urn and beacon of light which could be seen for miles. The elevator was operational until the 1930s when it, and the monument, fell into disrepair due to a shortage of public funds, neglect and lack of community interest. The elevator was eventually removed by the city in the early 1970s.

    They are planning to add lighting and open up the observation deck on top along with renovating the entire park.

    That's a cool plan, just don't know how many more people it will attract... but even if revenue is not the point, it'll be another marvelous place to go/see.

    Is this the tallest residential building in Brooklyn?

    Atlantic Yards will dwarf it.

    It's the tallest housing project.

Subtle detail variances, such as the louvers wrapping around the building or the offset window in the dormers, give this otherwise symmetric building the much needed asymmetry it deserves."
