Chances are that buyers looking to drop two million bucks on a pre-war co-op
with no elevator in Brooklyn Heights don't want the interiors to look like a new condo in the South Slope. Nor do they want to be staring at a brick. Such is the challenge with Apartment 3B at 19 Grace Court. The "Classic 7" is asking $1,999,000 now, down from $2,100,000 in July. Given the finishes and the fact that no board approval is required, we're guessing this is a sponsor job. Someone should start a support group for sponsors to explain to them that this kind of renovation just doesn't fly. Old moldings with 20 layers of old paint are far more fitting. Good luck with this one at more than $1,100 a foot. Looks like there are three other units on the market with a similar shtick.
