Say, Isn't That a Bay-Fronted Bed-Stuy Brownstone?

New, 2 comments

How to tell a row of bay-fronted brownstones (with triangular bays) from asymmetrical bay fronts? Or tripartite bay windows from a bow front? Bed-Stuy is a sort of encyclopedia of Brooklyn brownstone styles and the Bed-Stuy Blog helps keep them all straight. The styles in the photos above are:

1) Hanging corner turret (on left) + bow window on right.
2) Hanging corner bay.

3) Asymmetrical bay-front in middle of block.All of the photos in the post, and there are many more, were taken within a few blocks of Central Stuy. That sound? Brokers scouting properties.
