Two Renters Try Out the Amenities in Brooklyn’s Newer Buildings.

The couple would sometimes drive past the Prospect-Lefferts Gardens building, PLG, going up near Flatbush Avenue. “It is pretty much the biggest building in this neighborhood, so you see it from blocks away,” Mr. Braithwaite said. “I saw that they were planning to have a basketball court and I was sold, even though I haven’t played basketball in three or four years.”

They knew and liked the neighborhood; Ms. Mascall’s grandfather lived five minutes away, and Mr. Braithwaite’s mother a bit farther. “It felt good to be close to family,” Ms. Mascall said. “It really came down to ideal location, amenities and having three months free of rent.”


“We are hopeful that we will be able to keep construction in motion at key projects that have an affordable component, but only if it’s in the best interest of the city and the safety of its citizens,” Said Mitchell Moinian.
