  • #37 Rated condo - Williamsburg
How was this building rated?

This large and very impressive, 16-story building at 330 Wythe Avenue in the Williamsburg section of Brooklyn was converted by Stephanie Eisenberg from a shoe polish factory to a residential condominium with 75 units for "people making $40,000 to $50,000," according to an October 21, 2008 article by Leigh Kamping-Carder at observer.com.

Her involvement with Save Domino began in 2007, when she affixed those two words in giant, lighted-up letters to the side of her building," the article noted, adding that during the 2008 election "Save Domino" was replaced with "Vote Obama."

The article said Ms. Eisenberg bought the building, which was formerly the Esquire shoe polish factory and...
