proposed iron cresting detail
This French Second Empire style home, also known as the William B. Cronyn house at 271 9th Street was built in 1856–57. The villa later became offices of the Higgins Ink Company. This example of pre-brownstone Brooklyn was listed In The National Register of Historic Places in 1982. Since 1981 the Cronyn house has been the home of the musicians Charles and Vita Sibirsky and of their school, Slope Music.
Scope of work includes design and landmark approval for a new historic front entryway, restoration of ornamental iron cresting, and new rear deck.
