When it’s time to renovate your Brownstone, there may be nothing like the original. But how do you create a floor plan that fits your lifestyle? During this edition of the popular Anatomy of a Brownstone series, we will mix a little history and a lot of examples of what your neighbors’ Brownstones look like inside and outside their old homes. Architects and designers will show you how to fit your family’s life and style into a classic Brownstone.
