                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2001

                      About the owner: We are an architect and an artist with two older children. We both work from home. We love New York City and know where to find things and what to visit in Brooklyn and Manhattan. We have all traveled extensively around world so are aware of what's needed when staying in a new location. We are a bilingual home speaking both French and English. There are two cats in the house, but they stay upstairs.

                      Why the Owner Chose Brooklyn:
                      Fort Greene and the surrounding neighborhoods have become quite trendy as of late and the block is part of the Brooklyn Academy of Music historic district. Aside from the character of the neighborhood, we have tremendous subway access which makes our location In Brooklyn closer to key destinations in Lower Manhattan, Soho and Greenwich Village than those who live in the upper East and West sides of Manhattan.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
                      We are right around the corner from the Brooklyn Academy of Music which offers a unique program of avant-garde and modern performances by many leading artists and performers from around the world. There are several restaurants in the area, as well as boutique clothing and art stores.
