One Floor Up



The strange reconstruction underway at 830 Eastern Parkway continues. Workers are adding a fourth level to this ornate three-story brownstone between Kingston and Albany Avenues, on a block of similar homes from the early 1900's, all three stories high. Looking closer, new floors cut across the existing window frames, indicating the aging but gracefully finished facade and front are candidates for demolition. Will the resulting building alter the Eastern Parkway landscape?

Same Block 1910:
