Iâ€™ve been working on project in Prospect Heights, Brooklyn, a neighborhood just north of Prospect Park, which has become greatly gentrified over the past decade. Many of the buildings in Prospect Heights are under cooperative ownership. Washington Avenue, which runs diagonal through the photo below, is the traditional boundary between Prospect Heights on the west side and the neighboring Crown Heights neighborhood to the east. The stark contrast of the revitalization of Prospect Heights is apparent by the building roofs: on the Prospect Heights side most roofs are covered in fresh â€śsilver coatâ€ť (aluminum-based reflective material to keep energy-costs down in the summer), whereas on the east side of Washington Avenue, Crown Heights, the roofs are clearly not as well maintained.
