Crown Heights offers a variety of housing options: For townhouses, the Crown Heights North Historic District contains large and finely detailed row houses and freestanding mansions designed by Brooklyn’s major architects in the late 19th and early 20th centuries. Some of the area townhouses sport stained glass, ornate plaster ceiling medallions, and oversized windows. There are even rental units available in Crown Heights with these amazing historical details. A second area around Brower Park contains four- and five-family homes built mostly in the Renaissance Revival style, and Italian and Greek Revival styles, too. But if you do not desire a townhouse, the former Brooklyn Jewish Hospital of Crown Heights has been renovated to hold 700 rental apartments — some with 12-foot ceilings.
