Park Slope Brownstone traditional-staircase

Park Slope Brownstone

All new stair (newel is original) with enlarged structural opening between living room and hall.

Photography by Marco Valencia.

What Houzz contributors are saying:

Lusthoff, who authored a collection catalog with Chicago Art Institute professor Rolf Achilles, says newel posts reached their decorative zenith during the Victorian era.During the remodel of this brownstone in the Park Slope neighborhood of Brooklyn, New York, architect Ben Herzog rebuilt the stairs but preserved the original newel post.
