A Rare Brooklyn Townhouse Listing: Unrenovated, Unstaged and Filled to the Brim

301 Greene Avenue Photo: Google Maps As housing prices in Brooklyn have shot up over the last few decades, it’s become rare to see townhouse listing photos that are anything less than shelter-mag worthy. Occasionally, there might be some photos of a partially-gutted house: rooms stripped down to the studs, wires dangling from the ceiling, maybe a few broken floorboards that only add to the romantic charm. Looking at them, it’s easy to imagine yourself — or perhaps more accurately, your contractor — in the role of renovating savior: refinishing the floors, stripping paint...

The Nightmarish Subway Floods in China Could Be Our Future

Photo: China Daily CDIC/VIA REUTERS New Yorkers have barely recovered from the sight of subway riders pulling garbage bags over their legs to wade into waist-high brown pools at stations across the city. But somehow, over the past week, your imagined-yet-vaguely-plausible transit nightmare scenario got much, much worse. It rained two feet over the course of just four days in China’s Henan province — and in the capital, Zhengzhou, a city of 10.34 million people on the Yellow River, the flooding not only rushed into the stations but flooded the train tunnels too, filling commuter-packed...

‘I Saw My Best Friend, All Covered in Black, and Her Face Was Red With Blood’

After the blast in South Los Angeles on June 30. Photo: Francine Orr/Los Angeles Times via Getty Imag On the evening of June 30, the Los Angeles Police Department detonated confiscated fireworks in a vehicle designed to contain the blast. It went very wrong. The explosion flipped cars, shattered windows, and blew open walls, and the one-ton roof of the LAPD’s $1 million “total containment vessel” landed in a backyard two blocks away. At least 17 people were injured, some of whom were hospitalized, and two dozen households were displaced. At a press conference four days later,...

Bensonhurst Went Berserk Yesterday After Italy’s Football Win

Photo: Konstantin Sergeyev Yesterday, as Italy defeated England to win the European championship, Italian Brooklyn headed for Caffè Sportivo on 18th Avenue in Bensonhurst. The entire block was cordoned off; a truck had been brought in, one of those flatbeds with giant video screens onboard, and hundreds of enthusiastic fans swarmed in to watch. New York’s photographer Konstantin Sergeyev was on the scene. It was, he says, mostly an Italian American (rather than Italian expat) crowd. “Mostly speaking English,” Sergeyev says, “but a good amount of Italian.” And there were...

Even a Starchitect’s Homeless Housing Project Won’t Sway Venice Beach NIMBYs

Cyclists pass homeless encampments along the bike path in the Venice Beach area of Los Angeles on Wednesday, July 7, 2021. Photo: Jim Ruymen/UPI/Shutterstock “The first thing I want to say is that there are hundreds and hundreds of people who live in Venice who support what we’re doing,” says Becky Dennison, executive director of Venice Community Housing, when she meets me on Venice Boulevard a block from the Pacific Ocean on a gloomy June morning. To the south is the Venice Beach seen in postcards: the scenic canals fronting bougainvillea-fringed yards, reflections of arched...

Subway Flooding Is Here to Stay

Photo: Timothy A. Clary/AFP via Getty Images In 2012, Superstorm Sandy sent water pouring into subway stations around lower Manhattan and other parts of New York City. To prevent future flooding, the MTA began to install Kevlar “flex gates,” which drop down and seal off entryways to hold back up to 14 feet of water, at a couple dozen station entrances. But yesterday, when Tropical Storm Elsa inundated the city with as much as 3.5 inches of rain in certain areas, not a single one of the gates was used. That’s because yesterday’s storm showed another facet of how climate change...

Apartment Hunting With a Criminal Past Is Nearly Impossible

Photo-Illustration: Curbed; Photo: Education Images/Universal Image/GettyImages For the formerly incarcerated, finding an apartment in New York City is a Sisyphean task. They might ace the interview with an agent and have the cash for the security deposit and first month’s rent, but once their background check comes back with a criminal conviction, it all comes crashing down. Getting rejected again and again means staying in the shelter system or wherever else they’ve managed to secure housing. Worse, they’re caught in a cycle of homelessness and poverty that makes them more...

Meet Ramtin Ray Nosrati, the Builder Behind Many of L.A.’s Megamansions

Photo: Damon Casarez I always say, ‘The first thing you want to hear from the buyer when he opens the door is ‘Wow,?’ ” said the luxury-housing developer Ramtin Ray Nosrati as he stood at the front door of one of his latest projects: a nearly completed 12,000-square-foot six-bedroom, nine-bathroom home in the affluent Los Angeles neighborhood of Pacific Palisades. He gestured across the living room to the retractable glass wall and the balcony, which opens onto the emerald expanse of the Pacific Ocean. “If you hear that word, wow, you know you got them.” A key part of Nosrati’s...

Developers Will Finally Have to Assess Who Gets Displaced by Rezonings

Photo: Renata Tyburczy/Getty Images When the City Council approved plans to redevelop a 59-block stretch of Inwood in 2018, dozens of residents watching the vote in City Hall sprang up from their seats, shouting “Shame!” and “We will not surrender!” As is often the case with major development plans, the months leading up to the vote were dominated by concerns that rezoning would disproportionately displace longtime residents in the mostly Latinx neighborhood. Community groups called for a study of its impacts based on race, ethnicity, and income. But since this wasn’t required,...

Twilight of the Liveaboards

Photo: Victor Llorente On a recent evening in June, the sun was sinking over the Hudson River and the few dozen boats docked at the 79th Street Boat Basin bobbed in a light breeze. A handful of them are residential, with owners who have lived at the boat basin for upward of three decades. It was hard to imagine a more idyllic, if slightly raffish and odd, corner of New York City to call home. And then another boat passed by — nothing special, recreational, maybe 35-feet long — and the bobbing at the dock turned violent, the boats’ masts slanting precipitously. The wake had hit...
