In my neighborhood this evening - I see this church everyday in my walk #brooklyn #clintonhill #nyc
Today’s House of the Day: A landmark house — designed in 1889 for Charles A. Schieren, one of the last mayors of Brooklyn before it became a part of New York City in 1898 — is on the market for $9.875 million.
Writers Sean Wilsey and Daphne Beal spent two years and at least $3.5 million renovating the 8,750-square-foot freestanding house, which has an eight-bedroom owner’s triplex and a garden apartment.
See the full slideshow.
On a lovely Spring day, the Doctor Puppet and I went for a walk through Brooklyn. We came across Broken Angel, an institution of a building in the Clinton Hill neighborhood. Doesn’t it look like a place where you’d find a weeping angel?
Spring in Clinton Hill!
