Description

Turner Towers is an Art Deco-style apartment building at 135 Eastern Parkway in Brooklyn that was erected in 1926 and has 186 condominium apartments.

The 16-story building originally had an attractive water-tank enclosure in a short tower on its roof but the enclosure has not survived.

The building has a recessed central entrance with a canopy and sidewalk landscaping.

It was developed by Morris Turner and reportedly was Brooklyn’s first residential high-rise, according to the official website of the New York City Department of Parks & Recreation.

The building was lost in bankruptcy and eventually tenants sponsored a conversion to a cooperative in the 1980. 

In the 1990s, John B. Lovett & Associates supervised a renovation of the building.

Joan Rivers, the comic, grew up with her parent and sister in Apartment 107 in the building, which is across from Prospect Park and near the Brooklyn Museum of Art.
