Brooklyn Heights' Beauty Supplanted By Scourge Of Scaffolding

Brooklyn Heights has been known since the 1840s as the "City of Churches." You can forget that. The historic neighborhood's main drag, Montague Street, now has a new image: the center of scaffolding. No fewer than 10 buildings along its .29-mile, five-block stretch have been bombarded with the unsightly scourge. It's enough to make you long for the suburbs.
