The Jehovah's Witnesses are making a slow exodus from Brooklyn for larger pastures in Warwick, New York (and possibly saving Brooklyn Bridge Park from more condos in the process). They've been waiting out the downturn before putting their smaller Brooklyn Heights properties on the market, but the Jehovah's Witnesses seem to feel more secure about the state of real estate sales these days: five of those properties will hit the market this weekend, following three multi-family buildings that hit the market several weeks ago.
The two townhouses, two brownstones, and one carriage house (right) will have a combined ask of 18.8 million, according to the Times. The carriage house, two apartments with a four-car garage, is on Columbia Heights; the townhouses are on Orange and Willow streets; and the brownstones are on Willow and Remsen streets. Anyone buying?
