73 Pineapple Street in Brooklyn Heights Gets Some Bricks

73 Pineapple Street, a rare piece of new construction in Brooklyn Heights, added some bricks to its facade this week.   Its original design was shot down by the Landmarks Preservation Commission, but a new  plan was later approved and embraced by neighborhood preservationists.

What do you think of the brick?

    Nothing like non-structural masonry to satisfy the historicists.

    I’m usually not a fan of most new construction but I like it – very contextual and tasteful.

    Given the color, this would have been more appropriate on Orange Street.
