Downtown Brooklyn‘s Belltel Lofts are housed in a landmarked Art Deco tower at 365 Bridge Street that just happens to be the borough’s very first skyscraper. Built in 1929 as the headquarters for the New York Telephone Company, the 27-story building was designed by “architect of the century” Ralph Walker. In 2008, it was converted to condos by Beyer Blinder Belle and now has 217 apartments. This sunny unit, listed for $1,395,000, has three bedrooms, two bathrooms, and a private terrace that overlooks Downtown Brooklyn and sits against the building’s gorgeous brickwork.
