New, 9 comments

Brownstones have one-of-a-kind charm and intimacy that you're never going to get in a building, while buildings have amenities that you're not going to have in a brownstone. The Times wrote a piece discussing how brownstone rentals are gaining popularity now that there are fewer and fewer incentives being handed out by newer high-rises.
