Top 10 Condos in Brooklyn

In recent years, the northwestern part of Brooklyn has undergone a dramatic construction boom that has significantly augmented its skyline. This has led to a waterfront renaissance and created a new, non-brownstone inventory of low- and mid-rise residential buildings of considerable originality. Today, Brooklyn is no longer a distant second choice, but a serious residential and cultural alternative to cookie-cutter, post-war Manhattan high-rises and more recent billionaire aeries for foreigners.
