Before the Admiral's Row Wrecking Ball, Another Look

It's out with the old and in with the new at the Brooklyn Navy Yard. The new, Brownstoner reports, being 90 wind- and solar-powered lamp posts built by a company that calls the industrial park home, and the old being Admiral's Row?the strip of dilapidated homes that reportedly will be razed (save for one) following years of back-and-forth preservation battles. Over the weekend some fresh photos of Admiral's Row popped up in the Curbed Photo Pool courtesy of photographer Barry Yanowitz, and once again we were reminded how cool?and spooky!?the historic homes look. If HBO spins off its Grey Gardens movie into a new series, Admiral's Row would make the perfect set. Do we start the petition now?
