Originally William B. Cronyn House. An extraordinary remnant of pre-brownstone Brooklyn: a freestanding French Second Empire stucco house crowned with a cupola, slate mansard roof, and cast-iron crests against the sly. India ink, that intense black fluid so misnamed (it should be Chinese ink), was made here for draftsmen, designers, artists, and calligraphers. / 271 9th St, Brooklyn, NY 11215
