Experience perfection that lasts a lifetime in the heart of historic Park Slope at Park Union.
Located at 910 Union Street between 8th Avenue and Grand Army Plaza, Park Union was originally built in 1914 and has been meticulously transformed into 15 condominium residences. The seven-story development is comprised of two one-bedroom, two two-bedroom and 11 three-bedroom homes, most of which have outdoor space and breathtaking views of Grand Army Plaza. The residences at Park Union range in size from 735 to 1,905 square feet, and are priced from $865,000 to $2,295,000.
With the addition of four new stories and a complete gut-renovation of the interior of Park Union, the developers’ goal was to preserve as much of the original detailing as possible, while creating new construction in the Beaux-Arts architectural style. Elements of the original building were restored, including the lobby’s grand stairwell connecting the first and second floors and the building’s façade. Lending to the historic feel, the Park Union lobby features hand-forged iron doors, hand-designed mosaic tiles, crown moldings, and period-inspired lighting fixtures and finishes. Additionally, the developers commissioned the renowned Sculptor Michael Alfano to replicate 12 exquisite bronze medallions, a popular detail from buildings in the early 20th century, which appear on the railings facing Union Street.
You love Brooklyn. Hell, you love NYC. But after awhile, you get tired of the grind. Tired of cramming into a subway and standing so close to people that you can smell their natural musk. Tired of paying thousands of dollars a month to live in a one bedroom apartment with literally no space for any of your shit. Tired of your "view" being a brick wall.
Consider the Hudson Valley: 1-2 hours outside of the city, absolutely gorgeous views, fantastic food, and, perhaps most important, the general ability to RELAX.
We spoke to real estate agent Tim Hurley of Coldwell Banker about what he thinks are the best aspects of the Hudson Valley.
We all know that Brooklyn is home to some of the best talent, culture, and performance, but even the biggest Brooklyn loyalists might find themselves thinking that they have to go to Manhattan to see great theater and dance performances.
THINK AGAIN, YOU GUYS.
In its inaugural year, the BEAT Festival is the first of its kind to feature Brooklyn-based theater, dance and voice artists. We all know that Brooklyn is home to a large and diverse community of performing artists, and BEAT exists to provide a viable, consistent platform for their work.
Did you fall and twist your ankle while walking over a messed-up sidewalk or down a broken stairwell? Get mauled by a run-away taxi-cab? Get attacked by a crazy cat lady? Your first instinct might be to brush it off and say, “I’ll get better in no time.” You might even feel a little embarrassed by the situation.
That’s a natural reaction but the truth of the matter is that you may need more medical treatment that you initially thought. Questions always surface after an accident, like, the BIG ONE: who is going to pay your medical bills? Who's going to pay for your missed time from work? Most important? Who's going to pay for injuries that you now have to live and deal with?
