Hi, There are several homes around Greenpoint that are almost exact replicas of each other. All are polychromatic striated brick work. Maybe there is a more accurate description of these homes, but I am not the most up to date with the architecture terminology. Here is the google map of two of the several homes I am talking about: https://www.google.com/maps/place/89+Diamond+St,+Brooklyn,+NY+11222/@40.7256153,-73.9468554,3a,75y,241.14h,90t/data=!3m4!1e1!3m2!1sUYQzLJpJGtTVaf5dRvaw4A!2e0!4m2!3m1!1s0x89c25948ad93baa1:0xabddd1e8133dfe0d?sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiYgv3agLTrAhXDlXIEHX_ODEsQxB0wAHoECAsQAg https://www.google.com/maps/place/148+newel+street+brooklyn+ny/@40.7273621,-73.9488395,3a,75y,63.77h,90t/data=!3m4!1e1!3m2!1s1nYbO4IvU3Ch-MiqrWTyAw!2e0!4m2!3m1!1s0x89c259463068a0af:0xaaa934ec69bf4254?sa=X&ved=2ahUKEwiQmb3ogLTrAhV0gnIEHYAgC1oQxB0wAHoECAsQAg Anyways, does anyone know anything about how these came to be? Who designed them, or why they were cut out copies of each other? Records show they were built around 1899. All feature eagle ornaments on the roof or over the awning. After several hours of trying to locate information my self, I need to throw in the white flag and need some professional expertise!

Hello, do you have any ppl helping elderly neighbors, like grocery shopping?
So some idiots decided to move barriers and remove the manhole cover at 619 Manhattan Ave. I had to clip zip ties to surround the open manhole with barriers because there was nothing around it. 911 did nothing 94 precinct did nothing 311 did nothing. Con Ed put it an emergency ticket in. No response from any of them. If I didn’t put those barriers around it people would have fell down that especially in front of a bus stop.
