Great photos of Brooklyn - a beautiful place to live for many, many years. My ancestors on my dad's side lived there in the 19th century. Very under-rated.

Can you split up your photos between posts? I looked though them all and it would make it easier.

'SUCH A LOVELY PLACE'

These houses are so romantic and nicely built... some of them look like to have more than 100 years? Or only built in an traditional style?

How much costs to rent or buy such a house?

100-160 years old , these were the original suburbs before cars.... Houses sell for 500-700k , rent in this part of Brooklyn is about 4k for a house.

Looks like a very interesting neighbourhood.

I was intrigued by the "No dogs allowed" sign which is also in Russian. Is there a significant Russian population in that area?

I would say about 50,000 Russians/Ukrainians live there , most of the other central Asian races who live there speak Russian aswell....

Some of the large sets I do divide it up...the next 2 Neighborhoods that I do on Brooklyn which will be Bay Ridge and Dyker Heights...
