Is Newswalk really in Downtown Brooklyn?

From the On the Market page of today's New York Times Real Estate section:
DOWNTOWN BROOKLYN DUPLEX

$1,200,000

BROOKLYN: 535 Dean Street (between Sixth and Carlton Avenues), #322

A two-bedroom two-bath duplex in a converted printing plant with a full-time doorman, a health club and free indoor parking. Stefan Hiller, Prudential Douglas Elliman (917) 539-0210; www.prudentialelliman.com


Newswalk is in Prospect Heights, not Downtown Brooklyn, as the Times's most recent "Living in... Prospect Heights" coverage, on 12/18/05, confirmed.

More errors

It further adds, as "Cons":
On the border of Prospect Heights but not in a residential neighborhoods, the nine-story building faces the site of the proposed Atlantic Yards project, which would involve extensive residential and commercial construction.


Dean Street, home to the main entrance to Newswalk, is very much a residential neighborhood. See image by Tracy Collins.

The hint about "extensive" construction means lots and lots of noise and traffic.
