There are many contrasts between new and old in Brooklyn like, for instance, this, this and this. Some of the best, however, are between brick "Fedders Buildings" and their neighbors. (Not that Brooklyn has all the fun, especially when certain architects come to Manhattan.) Anyway, these very close friends come from Flatbush. Blogger Brooklyn Junction says of the match, "These two go together just like peas in a pod. I don't know what to call this exactly, but whatever it is should be outlawed... immediately...and retroactively, so as to apply to this situation."
