Asking $999,999, this detached single-family house in Marine Park feels like a true slice of American suburbia. It has a charming front yard and lots of curb appeal, a driveway that leads to a garage, and a rear patio and garden. Inside, there are four bedrooms, a sunroom, and a finished basement complete with a rec room and bar.

Covered with bottles, ceramics, and other 1950s household items and debris, Dead Horse Bay is a treasure trove in southern Brooklyn for collectors and historians. Last August, the National Park Service closed the southern part of the refuse-filled spot after finding radioactive contamination. Now, a petition has launched urging the NPS to collect and preserve as much as the debris as possible at Dead Horse Bay ahead of its planned cleanup of the site.

It’s been 300 years since the Hendrick I. Lott House was built on a rural piece of land in Marine Park, Brooklyn. One of the few Dutch-American houses remaining in NYC, in its original location no less, the Lott House also has the distinction of being the longest single-family owned and occupied home in the city. Though it is currently closed for renovations, the Lott House still hosts educational events, and this Saturday, they’ll be celebrating their milestone anniversary with a holiday celebration, tree lighting, and rare chance to go inside.
