A skyscraper grows in Brooklyn! The Brooklyn Skyscraper Historic District

Brooklyn Borough Hall-Court Street-Brooklyn Skyscraper Historic District-Landmark-NYC
We know that "A Tree Grows in Brooklyn", but did you know that skyscrapers did too? The about the Brooklyn Skyscraper District?

At the turn of the 20th century, in the Brooklyn Heights vicinity, the first Brooklyn skyscraper, the magnificent Temple Bar Building went up. Within a few decades, two dozen more popped up. In 2011, the city officially
recognized these buildings as historic landmarks despite fierce opposition from real estate developers.
