This very handsome, 12-story apartment building at 41 Eastern Parkway in Prospect Heights was built in 1926 and has 67 co-operative units.  

It is known as Copley Plaza and is just off Grand Army Plaza and across the street from the Central Library, Mount Prospect Park and the Brooklyn Botanical Gardens. 

Louis and Joseph Shampan were the developers and architects. 

It is close to the Brooklyn Museum and the Eastern Athletic Club and several subway lines.

Bottom Line

An elegant and stately, pre-war, co-operative apartment building just off Grand Army Plaza in Brooklyn.


The building has a three-arch entrance under a massive and handsome marquee that leads into a very impressive, stone-walled lobby. 

The building has nice sidewalk landscaping and a cornice. 

There are balustraded balconies on the second floor and central balconies above the eighth floor.  The second floor also has some curved window pediments. 

There are bandcourses above the third and fourth floors. 

The building originally had a handsome, central watertower enclosure. 


The building has a full-time doorman, a roof deck, a bicycle room, storage, a laundry room and is pet friendly.


The building has large apartments, some with 19-foot-long foyers and 20-foot-wide dining rooms and others with 18-foot-wide eat-in kitchens and 13-foot-long offices and others with 14-foot-long mud rooms and 14-foot-wide offices.
