The handsome building at 55 Pierrepont Street (which has quite a storied past: whores! gays!) is again seeing the light, as the scaffolding that has shrouded it for more than two years (a building worker confirms) at last has come down. In addition to (senior) residential, the 17-story building houses the Brooklyn Heights Association, Brooklyn Women’s Exchange and St Charles Jubilee Senior Center. According to Property Shark, it was constructed in 1920.
Unfortunately, down the street at 25 Pierrepont, residents are not so lucky. The scaffolding that has wrapped around both the front and side of that building along Willow Street, remains locked in place, with a “For Sale” sign slapped alongside.
