Believe it or not, before Trader Joe’s and Rag & Bone came along, Boerum Hill was a neighborhood filled with boarding houses for ironworkers who came to work on Manhattan’s bridges and skyscrapers. A number of manufacturing factories also made their way into the neighborhood during the early 20th century, including a construction at 120 Boerum Place. This beautiful pre-war building was converted into a condo in the early 80s. But instead of demolishing the whole thing, they fused the old with the new, keeping a number of industrial details intact, including an incredible “skytrack” that wraps the entire roof of the building.

For those who love the comforts of living in a premiere neighborhood, but want a more unfinished aesthetic, apartment #2J at the Skytrack is calling for you…

We’ll admit the yellow and gray walls aren’t doing much for the space, but with a bit of imagination, you can truly transform it into the Brooklyn loft of your dreams. It’s currently configured as a one-bedroom with a great room, living room and abundance of closets, but can be easily adapted to accommodate two bedrooms if desired.

And did we mention that in addition to roof access and a courtyard, it also has its own private terrace? But of course, if you’re hankering for something a little more out in the open, you can also walk on down Atlantic to Brooklyn Bridge Park, or enjoy the infinite dining, shopping and recreation options just minutes away by foot.

Want to tour the place in person? Listing agents Dylan Hildreth-Hoffman, Jamey Heiniein, Matthew Pucker and Kate Stewart are at your service.
