Lo studio GRT Architect ha appena completato il restauro di un grande appartamento a Brooklyn. Si tratta un edificio di quattro piani nel quartiere di Prospect Lefferts Gardens realizzato nel 1898 da William M. Miller. Trovandosi di fronte a una residenza storica, lo studio ha dovuto mantenere inalterata buona parte della struttura, come la facciata, e approntare i cambiamenti più marcati negli interni e nella parte posteriore degli esterni. Lo stile neoclassico, retaggio dell’Esposizione Colombiana nel 1893, è così preservato in un contesto fortemente segnato dall’influenza dello stile romanico di H.H. Richardson. All’interno si è deciso di mantenere intatto il pavimento in parquet, così come il living. Tra i pochi ritocchi, una linea decorativa in ottone che cattura l’occhio e rima gli spessi bordi lignei, incorniciando anche le porte.

🎀 Robin: “Mirror mirror on the wall, who is the most precious special-needs gumdrop of them all?” All mirrors in the universe throughout time and space: “YOU ARE.” ✨
⚠️ Let’s chat, team. This is Robin. She and her brother, Jellybean, have Cerebellar Hypoplasia. CH is a neurological condition in which the cerebellum is smaller than usual or not completely developed. CH cats are sometimes referred to as Wobbly Cats. They will have some special needs throughout their lives. We’ve been here before: the amazing @lindsayluwho , their foster mom, had CH kittens before (shoutout @tonks_n_luna ). This time is different. They’re going to need a family that can meet their unique mobility needs, and who will love them for every quirk. They’re sweet as pie, and looking for their forever. Could it be with you? DM us with any inquiries! 🏡 .
Jellybean and Robin are affectionate and playful and eat with reckless abandon. They are both meticulous groomers and use the litter box perfectly. They love other cats and dogs, but most of all they love each other and humans. While they both have limits to their mobility—Robin is wobbly and trips over herself, Jellybean can't stand or walk—both kitties manage to get themselves around at lightning speed, especially if there's food involved. .
My travel buddy was pretty impressed by the plane’s cockpit. And she bent down before I knew what was happening to remove my shoes for me at security. So all in all, she’s invited back 😉 Huntsville bound to see @clareprice86!
Strong sunflower game in Lefferts today.
I'll never not post photos of plant life, you can count on it.

When I think about the Flatbush tollbooth (what, you never think about the Flatbush tollbooth?), I think about how different Flatbush Ave must have been back then. Until 1858, after it left town, Flatbush Ave wended its way through the hills of what’s now Prospect Park before reaching the town of Brooklyn (now Brooklyn Heights and downtown). The tollbooth was moved to various locations on this road throughout its tenure. // The money from the booth was used to upkeep the road and was maintained by the Brooklyn Plank Road Company which, as the name might suggest, constructed planks along much of Flatbush Ave so that it wouldn’t turn into a disastrous mud pit like so many other roads of the day. This led the locals to call it “The Plank Road,” before it was popularly called Flatbush Avenue. // After they straightened the road around the future park, they moved the booth to the location shown here, the intersection of Flatbush Ave and Hawthorne St., and sold the streetcar rights to the Brooklyn City Railroad Company, which made black people RIDE ON THE ROOF of this contraption. // Believe it or not you can go see this very tollbooth in Prospect Park and take your photo with a guy in it who’s pushing a stroller and wondering why you’re taking a photo! It’s a rather inconspicuous, perpetually closed shack between the carousel and the Lefferts House (the grande dame of my Insta Highlights). Don’t everyone rush there at once and cause a scene! // 1st photo: New York Public Library, Irma and Paul Milstein Collection; 2nd: from Tales of Old Flatbush by John Snyder (3rd is mine). .
