"I too lived, Brooklyn of ample hills was mine,
I too walk'd the streets of Manhattan island, and bathed in the waters around it..."
Crossing Brooklyn Ferry

Every unit has been meticulously renovated to offer the exquisite, once-in-a-lifetime rental experience, a unique treat to come home to every day. Soaring scalloped ceilings and jeweled-glass windows will enchant the lover of architecture in you to no end.
