The Alhambra was built in 1899 and designed by famed Brooklyn architect Montrose Morris. By the 1980’s it was an empty wreck, it was brought back to life in the late 90’s by the Anderson Group. New York Architecture site has great before and after photos

Girls High School was built in 1886 and is the oldest public high school building in NYC that is still standing.
