New York TimesTrotting Out New Luxury

For decades, Caton Place, a street that runs for two blocks west of the Prospect Park Parade Ground, was best known for its horse stables, but now plans are underway to turn this short street into a destination for luxury rentals. The developers for 33 Caton Place and 22 Caton Place can’t agree on which Brooklyn neighborhood the street is in: One says Windsor Terrace, the other Kensington. But both seem to concur that renters in the area want apartments with finer finishes, and far more amenities, than what the existing Art Deco and Tudor complexes offer. “They are a big departure from the existing housing...

New York TimesA Tale Of De Blasio S Neighborhoods Park Slope And Yorkville

He’s finally in the new place now, his Dickensian catchphrase having taken him from the leafy idyll of Park Slope to the sleepy outpost of Yorkville. Mayor Bill de Blasio, the populist candidate, is gradually settling into Gracie Mansion, called “the people’s home” by the former mayor, Michael R. Bloomberg, when he restored and opened it to the public more than a decade ago. Mayor Bloomberg, of course, opted out, preferring his stately townhouse on East 79th Street. But as Mr. de Blasio has meetings on the front porch in Carl Schurz Park and holds barbecues in the backyard overlooking the East River, he might be surprised to...

RobbReportHarbor S Edge Luxury Waterfront Condominiums Arrive In The Hamptons

For as long as it has been an elite summer destination, the Hamptons’ iconic shingle-style homes have ranked among the most expensive in the nation. The often centuries-old waterfront bungalows rarely come on the market, and when they do, they move quickly—despite a price tag upwards of $10 million. Now Harbor’s Edge, the area’s first waterside condominium project, caters to those who want to maintain the Hamptons summer lifestyle without the burden of owning a home. Located at 21 West Water Street in Sag Harbor, the building is a couple of blocks from Main Street and within walking distance of more than 20 restaurants. Water Street Development in...

New York TimesLife After Brooklyn

By many measures, Jeff Huston and his wife, Lisa Medvedik-Huston, arrived late to Williamsburg, Brooklyn. They weren’t among the first waves of artists and hipsters in the early-to-mid ’90s to cross the East River in search of cheaper, grittier confines. When they rented a spacious, duplex loft two blocks from the Bedford Avenue subway stop in 2007, they found a safe neighborhood already dotted with clothing boutiques and wine shops. The height of the real estate boom was approaching, and condos were rising along both the waterfront and McCarren Park. Yet Brooklyn was still emerging from its postwar slump, and the borough felt new to many, including the...

The Connecticut PostOn The Market Entirely Redone

The flawlessly designed Salem Straits Colonial at 7 Whaling Road in Darien has been custom-designed and -crafted to offer nearly 5,000 square feet of living space in a private waterfront neighborhood. Enlisting Darien-based Fox Hill Builders to redesign the property from top to bottom, the previous owners took the home down to the studs. Over the course of several renovations, the 1970s-era house was reconfigured by revamping the layout, expanding its floor plan with an additional 500 square feet of living space and, ultimately, creating a light-filled home with seamless flow. A bright two-story foyer opens into a sun-drenched formal living room featuring wide-plank whitewashed floors throughout....
