BROWNSTONER READERS have their knickers in a collective twist over the townhouse featured today in “The Insider,” my weekly interior design/renovation column.

I knew that the poured concrete floor on the parlor level wouldn’t go over well with this group, which tends more toward restoration than modernist re-interpretation. The fact that some original woodwork and mantels were removed are more cause for apoplexy.

The second (master suite) floor is gorgeous, I think, with ebony-stained wood floors and what seems to be the latest trendy luxury in Brooklyn brownstone renovations, the dedicated ‘bathing room.’
