In a prime spot at the intersection of Brooklyn Heights and Dumbo, this out-of-the-ordinary duplex loft at 7 Everit Street is in a 19th-century carriage house. Asking $2,195,000, the co-op loft is on the upper floors of the former horse and carriage storage facility for the Eagle Warehouse next door. The Brooklyn Bridge and East River views from almost every window of the two-bedroom home are as iconic as the building itself, and a sprawling private roof terrace provides a chance to enjoy the view in the open air.

A housing lottery opened this week for 185 mixed-income units at a residential tower in Brooklyn. Located at 90 Sands Street in Dumbo, the 30-story building offers affordable units to those with extremely low to moderate incomes and formerly homeless New Yorkers. Once a hotel owned by the Jehovah’s Witnesses, the property was acquired by nonprofit Breaking Ground in 2018 for $170 million and converted into supportive and affordable housing. New Yorkers earning 30, 40, 60, 100, and 120 percent of the area median income are eligible to apply for the apartments, priced from $537/month studio apartments to $2,132/month one-bedroom apartments.

Asking $19.5 million, this just-listed penthouse at new condo tower Olympia Dumbo is currently Brooklyn’s most expensive listing. If the five-bedroom condo at 30 Front Street fetches the asking price, it will be among the borough’s most expensive sales ever. The record for Brooklyn’s priciest property sale currently belongs to the Brooklyn Heights townhouse at 8 Montague Terrace which sold for $25.5 million last year, followed by a $20.3 million Quay Tower penthouse on the Brooklyn Heights waterfront. The new listing also brings the big-ticket crown to Dumbo.

Asking $4,500,000, this penthouse loft condo sits atop the Sweeney Building at 30 Main Street in Dumbo. The 1,887 square-foot loft has three bedrooms and 18 windows for taking in panoramic, unobstructed views of the East River, bridges, and city skylines. But the most coveted perk may be the huge private terrace where said views can be enjoyed outdoors.

If you haven’t taken a selfie there yourself, you’ve definitely seen more of them than you can count–the corner of Washington and Water Streets, a cobblestone block with two brick warehouse buildings on either side framing a view of the Manhattan Bridge, often considered the most Instagrammable spot in Brooklyn. This loft is located in one of those buildings at 31 Washington Street, and it’s just as photogenic as what’s outside. The four-bedroom, top-floor condo is one of the largest in the neighborhood at 3,200 square feet, and it has 25 windows, four exposures, and three huge skylights.
