Brooklyn Heights Residence Wins Moses Award For Excellence

John and Patricia Duffy’s renovation of 265 Hicks Street, honored by the BHA earlier this year, has won a Lucy G. Moses Preservation Award.

Brooklyn Eagle: The award for the Duffy Residence, located in the Brooklyn Heights Historic District, honors the outstanding restoration of one in a row of six Italianate row houses, constructed between 1861 and 1879. This prominent corner property originally was adorned with details typical of the neighborhood and the era. Decades after those details were shrouded or removed, the house has undergone a remarkable renaissance.

    They also had the right, which they chose not to exercise, to put in a curb cut on Hicks and, instead of having a garden on the side of the house, have a parking place for a car. Kudos to them for putting plants over autos!
