    Default The house that art built

    Mary-Ann Monforton and her husband, Morris Shuman, own a house in Stuyvesant Heights, which is considered the fanciest part of Bedford-Stuyvesant.

    They put down 12-foot lengths of rift-cut oak flooring stained a color called English chestnut


    They gutted the place of its many marble fireplaces and Victorian details


    In back, the oversized doors and windows linking the living room and the deck were fabricated from aluminum and glass by a commercial door maker


    The doors are a modified version of what you'd find on a modern storefront




    The building has exposures were east and west, adding a lot of natural light

    i like the dining room. i want the chairs. the ones around the table. the other ones are kind of fug.
    but it's kind of downhill from there.
    the sofas in the 2nd picture are nice, and i like the aluminium and glass door, and the stairs. but the office looks like a dentist's clinic or something (that is one seriously ugly recliner) and i really don't like the dressing room or bedroom either.
    the whole thing is kind of sterile and lacks any personal details.

    It's not horrible but not great, either. It's just so bland and boring. There's absolutely no personality.

    It's a nice renovation. It's just that you get murdered on your way home. The fanciest part of Bed-Stuy? Where's Witchcurl on this one?

    So when does the art get its money back.

    I'm here! Late, but here.

    The fanciest part line kills me. It wouldn't take much to be the 'fanciest part' of Bed Stuy. Having all unbroken windows on your home might do it.

    Not a very safe part of town to put it nicely. Bed-Stuy was always the murder capital of NY.

    Oops, they forgot to finish painting outside of the 7-11 doors on the back of the house.

    If Art built it, maybe we should call Paul to burn it down.
