The Ovington Building, at the corner of Fulton and Clark Streets, Brooklyn, 1887. Originally the location of a retail outlet for high-end porcelain and ceramics, the building later became home to a large number of Brooklyn artists, who rented lofts there. The structure was demolished around 1960.


NEWS
A painting has recently surfaced that the owner claims was executed by prominent early 20th Century Brooklyn artist Edwin Howland Blashfield.
