This blog is a follow up to our March 5th blog on Crown Heights North Phase Three moving towards historic district status.

Great news for the community, preservationists and interesting news for Brooklyn Real Estate companies and Brooklyn Real estate brokers and agents. A third section of Crown Heights known as phase three has won landmark status. Landmarks Preservation Commission Chair Meenakshi Srinvasan said “I’m very excited about this” He congratulates the phase three section of Crown Heights North for having a cohesive collection of beautiful homes which enjoy a rich social and political history.Shirley Chisolm, the first black woman to serve in Congress, who also ran for President in 1972 lived in Crown Heights.

Many of the homes in phase three were built in the 1880’s in neo-grec or neo-grec/Queen Anne style. Some of the particularly handsome homes are on Revere, Hampton and Virginia Places.

According to Ethel Tyus a Crown Heights North Association member, if the CHNA is successful in getting phase three listed on the State Register of Historic Places and the National Register of Historic Places, it would make the residents eligible for 20% State Tax credits and 20% Federal Tax credits on home renovations. 

CHNA does have plans for a phase four landmark protection. Updates to follow.
