Many Brooklyn real estate companies and their agents are familiar with the magnificent Brownstone homes in the historic districts of Brooklyn Heights, Crown Heights North and Prospect- Lefferts Gardens. The New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission will most likely at some point in time designate several wonderful streets in Sunset Park as a historic district.
Brooklyn’s Bay Ridge neighborhood (where the famous Gingerbread House is located on Narrows Avenue), has several magnificent streets, which do not have the official designation, but could easily be considered historic in look and feel. On the beautiful tree lined streets of Bay Ridge Place and Shore Court there are century old bow windowed houses with streets paved with belgian block cobblestones!
At one point, property owners on Bay Ridge Place partnered with Community Board 10 to convince the Department of Transportation not to use asphalt to repair their cobblestone street.
Other notable streets in Bay Ridge with rows of classic, well kept brownstone and limestone houses are Ovington Avenue, just around the corner from Bay Ridge Place and the 6900 block of Ridge Boulevard.
