Mews House With Fireplaces, Garden on Cobble Hill’s Verandah Place Asks $10,500 a Month

Verandah Place must be one of the most photographed little streets of Cobble Hill, and the 19th century brick homes that line it are a huge part of its charm, along with its position overlooking Cobble Hill Park. One of those little houses, No. 6, is up for rent, and while the total monthly nut is not exactly modest, it does include four floors of living space.

Not all of the houses on this scenic stretch in the Cobble Hill Historic District were built as stables; some were originally single-family homes, as is the case here. This particular pre-Civil War house belongs to journalist Cara Greenberg, who pens Brownstoner’s Insider column.

Any home that’s more than 160 years old is bound to have a few secrets. The current owners of 1812 Delancey Place found that out firsthand while renovating their five-floor, approximately 5,000-square-foot townhouse a few years ago. But rather than letting surprises disrupt their plans, they welcomed the chance to repurpose original design elements. “We unearthed a window that had been walled up with several panes of pebble glass intact, black with dirt accumulated after more than a century,” says the lady of the house.

“We restored the glass and incorporated it into a custom-designed china cabinet door and in a transom window over the French doors leading into the kitchen.” She adds that they also “recycled” the original front doors for a doorway to a new kitchen pantry and restored all of the home’s brass hardware, including the

Autonomous Modular Kitchens on Wheels. Burgers and Chinese All in One Place

That’s right, this design we are seeing isn’t just some autonomous transportation vehicle, or even a freight distribution EV, it’s simply a food truck. Simply is actually the wrong word for it, but you’ll get the idea.

This idea came about as most other ideas have, because of a need. The need to feed is something humans have been facing since…well, forever. So it makes sense to step up the game and apply some modern systems to an ever-present habit.

She’s called Streat, and is the mental offspring of Lee Sungwook, a Korean cat out of Seoul. The issue at hand out there is that most restaurant businesses fail, leaving huge debts in owner’s pockets. And Streat is meant to be a buffer for that scenario. Your average restaurant start-up is about $65,000 while a food truck is only around $15,000. Just that alone is a huge decrease in
