I am now at the point where I am asking all of my friends and family for some assistance (no I have not lost my wallet in another country).
I am looking to assemble a group of people who are willing to get a free copy of my book, read it and post an honest review on Amazon prior to the official launch of the book. The reason why that is so important is that the more reviews I get on Amazon, the more visible my book will be once the launch takes place in approximately 30 days. Of course feel free to spread the word to other people.
To be part of my street team, go to http://gocondo.nyc/ and sign in on my email list. Once it is finished (finally!), everyone will get a free copy of the enhanced version of the book accompanied with the a check list which will be integrated with the book. Each Ambassador will also be entitled to take part in a group Q&A session monitored by me.
Watchcase in Sag Harbor From the Long Island Market Report: Older homeowners downsizing and younger couples moving from the city have fueled a recent surge in the number of Long Island condominium projects and their trend toward city-style designs and amenities, according to developers and brokers. An analysis of attorney general filings for condo projects…
Below is an article about the bright future of a much beleaguered property known as the “Broken Angel House”. Alex Barrett and Barrett Design and Development who purchased the property and are developing the building are clients of Marcus Attorneys which represented them ( by Guillermo Santiago, Esq.) on the acquisition.
I can honestly say that in our years of representation they have always put out attractive and quality projects. If anyone can fix this broken angel, they can.
I can’t wait to see how it turns out. There will be future posts on the progress of the development as it becomes available.

Clinton Hill Development Boom
As land prices in downtown Brooklyn climb, investors
are migrating north to the area that hosts four subway lines
Barrett Design and Development, led by Alex Barrett, is reinventing one of the community’s beloved properties, 4 Downing St, formerly known as the Broken Angel House, as named by the pair of artists who lived there and turned it into a piece of art. (It also was the backdrop for the ’05 movie Dave Chappelle’s Block Party.) Barrett acquired the property for $4.1M in January. The four-story, 10k SF building will become eight 1,100 SF condos by Q1, and a vacant lot next door at 8 Downing will become a four-story, duplex condo building within 12 months.
Our friends at Honest Buildings clued us into the project, which has a storied history. Alex believes it was built in the late 1800s as an eight-unit railroad apartment building (albeit uncommonly wide at 40 feet). The previous owners, artists Arthur and Cynthia Wood, acquired it in 1979 and made it quite the single-family home. They removed floors to create a ziggurat-style interior and added artistic embellishments, including a 50-foot tower. The additions weren’t in line with building codes, and the property got the attention of the city after a fire in ’07. Arthur and a partner developer started removing the code violations, but the JV had financial troubles, and eventually the bank foreclosed.
Alex and team have finished removing the illegal additions (they’re keeping others). He expects to launch sales in the fall. His company also partnered with Groundswell, which identified a local artist – Misha Tyutyunik, who lives three blocks away – and The Urban Assembly Unison School, just half a block away, to work on the mural that covers the construction site fencing. The mural traces the site’s past as a farm, apartment building, Broken Angel House, and soon-to-be condos. When construction is complete, the mural will move to the school.
[Located just a short walk from 4 Downing St], the focal point of Clinton Hill’s residential development, says Massey Knakal’s Stephen Palmese, is the three-year-old Putnam Plaza at Fulton, Grand, and Putnam, part of the Department of Transportation’s initiatives to put unusual intersections (this one is a triangular intersection) to better use. Already, the public project has attracted trendy eateries Lox and Hill Cafe to open there.

To gain some perspective of what they started with, below is a video (Hugo’s Peep Box) of the building prior to development.
