Bed Stugly on Monroe Street

FullSizeRender (1)

I’ve noticed this bizarre stone facade look not just in Bed Stuy but throughout all of Brooklyn. What really bugs me is that I have no idea when in NYC history people thought it was a good idea to cover their brownstones with this terrible mosaic. Usually I can come up with a rough estimate of architectural trends in the city, but with this one I have no clue.

It’s quite popular, too. This lovely home sits just a few doors down:


Wonder what it’s like trying to take that stuff off and restore the original facade? Not easy, I’m guessing.
