Listing photos by Tim Waltman-Evan Joseph

This Dumbo penthouse has been featured in over a dozen design publications, including Architectural Digest, Dwell, and The New York Times. And it’s for good reason. Designed by General Assembly, there are interesting details everywhere: Reclaimed oak beams from 19th-century barns serve as the floors; a glam built-in bar doubles as a pet-food station; and there are concrete walls and Flavor Paper wallpaper throughout. In addition, there are two balconies and a massive roof deck with views of the Manhattan Bridge and downtown skyline. Located at 102 Gold Street, the two-bedroom condo is asking $2,450,000.

It’s been 12 years since the Williamsburg waterfront was forever changed when the two massive towers of The Edge were constructed. Located in the South Tower at 22 North 6th Street, this $3,999,999 penthouse shows that the condo hasn’t lost any of its prestige over the years. At nearly 2,000 square feet, the three-bedroom duplex has 21-foot floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking Brooklyn, as well as a 714-square-foot private rooftop terrace.

While the city’s public libraries remain open for grab-and-go lobby service only, a new initiative brings poetry and literature right to you. The Brooklyn Public Library this month launched Whispering Libraries, an outdoor audio experience featuring a collection of oral histories, podcast excerpts, spoken word, and more, broadcast from hidden speakers at branches across the borough. The curated playlists can be heard up to five times per day at 10 select branches.

After being closed to the public for nearly seven years, the historic Concert Grove Pavilion in Prospect Park reopened this week following a restoration. Designed in 1874 by Calvert Vaux, who co-designed the Brooklyn park with Frederick Law Olmsted, the stunning structure features colorfully painted wood ceilings and iron columns, ornate wooden trim, and a star-patterned stained-glass dome.

True to its Red Hook roots, this newly reimagined property is completely unique, blending laid-back vibes reminiscent of a California surf shack with contemporary design and industrial touches. The house itself is tiny, with just two rooms and a bathroom, but there’s a separate detached worked studio, a roof deck, and an outdoor oasis complete with two decks, a covered patio, and even a fire pit. This magical home is now on the market for $1,595,000.

Outdoor food market operator Smorgasburg announced on Wednesday that it will open a new flea market at a location already familiar to most New Yorkers. Hester Flea will set up shop on the Lower East Side at Hester and Essex Streets, the same place where the Hester Street Fair operated for the last decade, organizers said in an email. As Curbed first reported, the Seward Park Co-op board did not renew the longtime LES fair’s lease after their agreement ended last year.
