Steps from the Promenade and Brooklyn Bridge Park in Brooklyn Heights, this one-bedroom co-op at 73 Columbia Heights, asking $765,000, doesn’t transcend the average New York City shoebox. But a magical 335-square-foot private garden just out back is an urban outdoor space with room to roam.

A co-op in Brooklyn Heights’ iconic Eagle Warehouse & Storage Company at 28 Fulton Street—described by CityRealty as “one of the city’s great Romanesque-style landmarks”—is now available for just under $2.1 million. With a private street entrance, the residence is technically a maisonette spanning over three levels. Inside, the architect owners have added their touches to an already character-rich space.

Real estate is almost on a par with religion for many New Yorkers, and this $1.95 million co-op in a 1850 Gothic church at 99A Clinton Street in the heart of Brooklyn Heights could be the answer to your prayers. The stunning stone church was converted to a 10-unit co-op in the 1970s.

Asking $1.895 million, this circa 1844 brownstone duplex at 44 Remsen Street sits on one of the most sought after blocks in Brooklyn Heights. Situated on two floors of what was once a single-family home, the co-op’s crown jewel is also what may have been the original home’s grandest room: A 15-foot-by-20-foot great room is framed by a 12-foot-high coffered ceiling, paneled walls, intricately detailed oak trim and a southern elliptical wall featuring stained glass windows that depict the four seasons.
More brownstone beauty, this way

Brooklyn Heights is an expensive neighborhood to be sure, but the five-story townhouse at 88 Remsen Street, asking $18 million, takes the top spot for the entire borough, where the most expensive sale to date was around $15.5 million (h/t Curbed). For that price, you’re certainly getting your money’s worth. The five-story home offers a separate apartment on the ground floor, with an owners’ quadraplex above, complete with decks and harbor views. The historic home has lots of restored original details. But the most unique part of this pricey property is the carriage house that’s included in the sale; across a quiet alley, this quaint structure is thoroughly renovated and includes a garage, a full kitchen, and a skylit recreation room.

Just as the summer months are hitting their stride, two food options have arrived at Brooklyn Heights’ ONE°15 Marina in Brooklyn Bridge Park: a waterfront bistro called Estuary and a more casual cafe called Ebb & Flow. With James Beard Award-winning chef Francois Payard as Culinary Director at both locations, the emphasis is on simple dishes highlighting seasonal, local produce, seafood, and meat. Payard is joined by Executive Chef Danny Brown, who earned a Michelin star for his own Danny Brown Wine Bar & Kitchen in Queens.

The Landmarks Preservation Commission on Tuesday approved plans from starchitect Bjarke Ingels to build a rooftop addition at a landmarked building in Brooklyn Heights. As part of a penthouse renovation of the 29th and 30th floors of the St. George Tower at 111 Hicks Street, Ingels would construct a fake water tower to hold a new elevator shaft, raise the roof deck, and add a pool. As first reported by Brownstoner, the Danish architect, whose firm is known for New York City projects like The Eleventh and the Spiral, presented his plan to the commission as a personal project. “I have a massive self-interest because I hope to make it my home,” he said.

This wood frame house at 59 Middagh Street, which, according to the current listing, is considered third oldest home in Brooklyn Heights, was built in 1832 for a New York University professor. The 6,300-square-foot home certainly appears quaint–if unremarkable–on the outside. And while it’s a spacious 28 feet wide, the home’s interiors have been completely reconstructed with a high-end builder-grade renovation, giving it every contemporary luxury–including an elevator, a wet bar, a sauna and a gym–and all of the historic charm of a suburban McMansion. The six-bedroom, single-family home’s last recorded sale was for $3 million in 2014. It’s been on the market for nearly a year, first asking $11.5 million. After a broker switch and a price chop, the house is asking a still-ambitious $10 million.
