Enjoy one of the city’s richest collections of gorgeous Victorian architecture.
This is among the city’s most well-preserved collections of 19th century rowhouses. MacDonough Street, Decatur Street, and Bainbridge Street make up the Stuyvesant Heights Historic District, one of the major stops on Brooklyn’s brownstone belt. Homes come replete with details like arabesque masonry, wrought-iron fences, turrets, wide stoops, bowed windows, and animal grotesqueries — much of it the handiwork of the borough’s famous architect, Montrose Morris. Look to the northwest section of the neighborhood for newly built residential units and condos.
