There’s never been an apartment so ideal for summertime. This three-bedroom rental comes from 87 Hudson Avenue, a development in the quaint Brooklyn neighborhood of Vinegar Hill, situated just north of DUMBO. Over an upper and lower floor there are multiple skylights, two outdoors spaces, even interior glass walls to let the light flood through. You’ll need sunglasses before renting this pad, which is now on the market asking $6,000 a month.

Sitting on a quiet block of colorful, historic homes in Vinegar Hill (okay, Downtown Brooklyn, but minor details…) is the perfect three-bedroom townhouse for a budding family. The 100-year-old storybook home covers 1,878 square feet and features a shady landscaped backyard with more than 30 types of flowers, a stone goldfish pond, and a winding path. And it’s back on the market for $1.995 million.
Aristotle’s wise words,”The whole is better than the sum of its parts,” are certainly true in the case of this beautifully designed Vinegar Hill home. With owners who were used to a large, sprawling Victorian in equally sprawling Los Angeles, combining two apartments in a bland developer-style building in Brooklyn proved to offer the perfect replacement, given the right amount of ingenuity.
Brooklyn’s roster of A-list celebs could soon be growing. According to the NYP, Robert Pattinson was recently spotted touring this DUMBO-adjacent Brooklyn pad at 69 Gold Street in Vinegar Hill. The historic townhouse is quite the stunner, recently gut renovated by its current owner. The four-story home comes with four bedrooms, a 2-3 car garage, a private terrace, and lots of character.
In New York, if there is anything we talk about more than weather, it’s how “____ is the new ____”. Now, the owner of a storage building at 80 Hudson Avenue in Brooklyn is banking on Vinegar Hill becoming the new DUMBO.
Globe Storage and Moving Co. just hired Dan Marks at TerraCRG to get the word out that his seven-story, 80,000-square-foot storage warehouse is a covetable piece of real estate worthy of one ambitious investor willing to refurbish it and rent it out, or use it, as an office space. The owner’s plans come on the heels of DUMBO’s strengthening office leasing market and he hopes this trend will stay strong enough to spill some of that demand for space over his way. Crazy? Probably. But Etsy did make plans to move into the neighborhood, signing up for 200,000 square feet in the Jehovah’s Witness Towers conversion just 10 minutes away from Globe. The towers will soon see a transformation into a high-tech incubator and residences (seen above). Mr. Marks told Crains: “Office tenants will start to see it as a great location.” By association, of course.
