While it may be most known for its historic brownstone-lined streets, Brooklyn’s building boom is bringing new high-rises and modern condos to neighborhoods across the borough. The new buildings are sometimes at odds with the look and character of established structures surrounding them. Brooklyn-based illustrator David Ostow created a satirical guide to categorize and help identify the types of projects developers are creating. The six examples are a commentary on the types of people drawn to live in these buildings as much as on architecture itself.
