I found the MLS listing on the Exit Realty Top Properties site, and recognized the place immediately. I'd photographed it last fall. This one's on 11th, between Third and Second, one of those houses dwarfed by newer buildings & left over from a time when the grade of the street was much lower. Under its siding, a piece of Gowanus history. I think I'm in the minority here, but I find the loss of these old wooden houses sadder than a handful of stout burghers' brownstones making way for a hospital expansion.
