THE IRONWORK OF BROWNSTONE BROOKLYN is extraordinary in any season, but snow makes chunky cast-iron newel posts and scroll-like gates and railings stand out all the more graphically. Before the snow melts completely, I thought I’d share a few images of the infinitely varied 19th century ironwork of my home borough, mostly from Boerum Hill. Of course, this is just the tip of the iceberg…
