William Ulmer Mansion

A portion of Bushwick known as “Brewers Row” could become a historic district if local high school teacher Adam Schwartz is successful in his landmarking push, according to the Brooklyn Paper. Schwartz, who has already gotten Council member Diana Reyna on board, has been working with his 11th and 12th grade students at the Academy of Urban Planning to identify historic buildings along Bushwick Avenue for consideration by the city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission. The street is lined with the now-deteriorating former residences of beer makers, including the William Ulmer Mansion, which isn’t landmarked, although Ulmer’s brewery became a landmark earlier this year. The former home of Mayor John Hylan sits a few blocks away, and the Ridgewood Masonic Temple is also nearby. Schwartz hopes that landmarking individual icons and creating a historic district for the surrounding area would prevent the buildings from being sold off or altered further. [Brooklyn Paper]
