    So it’s a new parking garage with some housing.

    • Considering there’s almost 40k sf of community facility and commercial, the zoning probably requires a lot of parking. It literally is a industrial / commercial avenue so I wouldn’t be surprised.

  2. What did the old building used to be? It looks pretty interesting.

  3. this was originally the entrance to the old Brooklyn Ebbets Field home of the Brooklyn Dodgers which was right next door and is now the Ebbets Field housing projects.

  4. It was a Firestone tire and automotive repair shop, not the entrance to Ebbets Field! Also Ebbets Field is an apartment complex, not a housing project

  5. How can I get an application and do you take section8.

    • Contact information for building management of Ebbets Field Apartments:

      718-756-2400 (office)* (website)

      The building management can be contacted during regular business hours of 9am – 5pm
