[WATCH] Take a Peek at the MTA's Famous Fake Brownstone in Brooklyn Heights

If you go to Brooklyn Heights and take a stroll down Joralemon Street towards the waterfront, and if you are observant of your surroundings, you will come across a strange townhouse at number 58 that will look a little out of place. The windows are opaque, the door is boarded up, and there are several pipes sticking up out of what should be a basement courtyard. In this short video from CityXcape, learn about this strange building, and how the MTA uses it for subway ventilation.
