The newest trend in Carroll Gardens Brownstone fashion is the "plywood wrap." It consists of the entire building being hidden behind sheets of wood, including the front yard. The trend was first spotted earlier in the spring at the corner of Court and First Place. Now it made an appearance at the corner of First and Smith, precisely at 126 First Place.
I just checked what's up with that location on the D.O.B. site. Surprise, surprise. Another "Vertical and Horizontal enlargement." Exactly what that block needed. The house is right next to the colorfully stuccoed Hannah Senesh school and around the corner of 360 Smith, the proposed Stein/Scarano building. That block is really getting f****ked up.
