Founded in 2004, Brownstoner covers a rapidly changing Brooklyn through the lens of real estate, development and renovation.
They’ve written about Australian investment-backed firm Dixon snapping up townhouses in Brooklyn, the Pierhouse hotel blocking the view of the Brooklyn Bridge, and drama over zoning and gentrification in Prospect Lefferts Gardens. A Brownstoner story on the planned demolition of a notable historic building in East New York sparked a local protest to save it as well as a preservation movement that helped landmark other buildings in the neighborhood.
If you want to know what is happening with a controversial development or the derelict building on the corner, how to landmark something, where the real estate market is going, or how to fix a leaky cellar, check out Brownstoner.
Brooklyn Paper will be publishing a Brownstoner story each day this week. We invite our readers to check out Brownstoner and sign up for the Brownstoner newsletter.
