Will 67 Remsen Be Brooklyn Heights’ Next Mansion?

Curbed reports that owner Gili Haberberg wants to convert the ten unit apartment building at 67 Remsen Street (photo) to a mansion-sized (4,700 square feet) single family residence. Haberberg bought the property from the Jehovah’s Witnesses in 2012 for $3.35 million. It sits next to the back end of the Bossert, between Hicks and Henry streets.

    Not the greatest location in the Heights. Blocked from the setting sun on the west, next to the Bossert’s Remsen Street back entrance.

    True – nice block though. The wide sidewalks make it more enjoyable to walk down than some of the other nearby streets.

    I’m always surprised to learn how much of the Heights the JW’s have occupied. I’d figured they were mostly confined to the bigger dormitory buildings but not so. I wonder if they’ll miss the Heights when they’re settled into Warwick.

    I’ve heard the volunteers, many from cities, now have to deal with deer, raccoons and other wildlife outside their dormitories.

    Not to mention imagine what the back yard must be like — with the Bossert looming over it and backed up to the Key Food. Blerg.

    Irrelevant (like this) comments from JW lovers/haters often clog up threads about their former properties. Claude, can you delete this?

    I just tried. Apparently I don’t have the power to do this.
