Karl on 177 Montague and Neighboring Brooklyn Heights Architecture

Mr. J. has put together an impressive video presentation (after the jump) focusing on the Brooklyn Trust Building, now occupied by Chase Bank, the upper floors of which are being converted for residential use. He then gives us a tour of some neighboring architectural gems, including the Brooklyn Historical Society, St. Ann and the Holy Trinity Church, and St. Ann’s School. He also shows us renderings of some lost treasures, like the Brooklyn Eagle Building.

    Another informative video. Speaking of development, BBP chose a developer for the Empire Stores, it seems: http://www.brownstoner.com/blog/2013/08/bbp-chooses-developer-for-empire-stores/?ic_source=ic-featured-frontpage-top

    Thanks for the wonderful, informative video, Karl. Would love to see you do a history of 55 Pierrepont Street, which has recently undergone an amazing renovation.

    I thought the Jay Street Firehouse was by Frank Freeman, not George Post as mentioned at 3:45. Wikipedia seems to think so, too: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Brooklyn_Fire_Headquarters

    Ouch. One thing I love about Brooklyn Heights is that there are so many intelligent people in our midst. A correction will be forthcoming. Nice work.
