    Nice video. So much has been preserved in our neighborhood but sometime I’d be curious to see a history of the buildings that didn’t make it. There was once a mansion on the corner of Henry and Joralemon that was apparently quite impressive. See:

    And Remsen east of Clinton must have looked quite different before St. Francis College was built on the south side. Of course, things could have been much, much worse if not for the historic district designation in 1965.

    I suggest the excellent volumes of photographs of streetscapes and buildings preserved and vanished, compiled by Brian Merlis and Lee A. Rosenzweig. I have “Brooklyn Heights & Downtown, volume I: 1860 to 1922, published in 2001 by Israelowitz Publishing in association with Brooklyn Editions. There must be a second volume covering the period after 1922. The other volume by Brian Merlis alone is titled “Brooklyn -The Way It Was,” published by Israelowitz Publishing in 2003; it covers every part of Brooklyn from Bath Beach to Williamsburg.
