The Broken Angel House in Clinton Hill was one of Brooklyn’s most unique landmarks. Artist Arthur Wood purchased the tenement building in 1979 for $2,000 and subsequently transformed it into a whimsical, livable sculpture, complete with stained glass windows made from bottles and glass, a cathedral-like glass addition, and brick wings. It was also the backdrop for the documentary Dave Chappelle’s Block Party.
Barrett Design and Development purchased the site at 4-8 Downing Street in January for $4.1 million. And it will be repurposed as a condo development, with sales launching next month and a new teaser site up and running.
