2nd St. Eco-Reno Digs Up Controversy

By Lisa M. Collins

Carroll Gardens blogger Katia Kelly has info on a renovation project on 2nd Place, underway for three years, that had gotten a permit to excavate under the front courtyard to build a storage cellar, and then found itself slapped recently with a stop-work order, as Carroll Gardens front courtyards are property of the city.

The property is owned by Gennaro Brooks-Church, and is a showcase house in “green” renovation for his firm, Eco Brooklyn.

There has been much debate in the last year about the rules regarding front courtyards in Carroll Gardens, and the city’s uneven enforcement of rules regarding the front courtyards.
