It is within two blocks of the Nostrand Avenue LIRR stop and in close proximity to the Nostrand Avenue A & C train stops, in addition to a bustling array of restaurants, coffee shops, entertainment venues, and parks in rapidly growing Crown Heights. 1187 Dean Street was one of five houses on Dean Street designed and built in 1893 by Paul F. Higgs in the Renaissance Revival style, when improvements in transportation hastened the construction of hundreds of exceptionally fine brick and stone row houses in the Crown Heights area. These buildings are characterized by their alternating facades, box stoops, elaborate entryways, and prominent cornices. The building is an SRO and will be delivered with a Certificate of Non Harassment.
