“Busy Builders,” BRERIP vol. 1, no. 2 (Dec. 8, 1883): p. 3.

Long, Charles, has built enough houses to know how to make the least money go the longest way, and is displaying his knowledge in this direction in the six 3-story brown stone fronts he is erecting for himself at Ninth street and Seventh avenue, now in various stages of erection, to cost about $8,000 each. The fronts of these houses show a little deviation from the everlasting sameness, which is so marked a characteristic of Brooklyn architecture, the trouble being, probably, that after a man has built one block of houses he goes on for the rest of his life building other blocks on the same plans. This may be economical, but it is not artistically exhilirating.

Wood, J. F., is building 5 very handsome 3-story and basement brown stone front dwellings on 9th st, near 7th av. They are 18x45 and much the same as the average house of this style. The last of the inside finish is being put in place and they will undoubtedly command a good figure in the market. The cost is about $7,500 each. The owner is Charles Long.

"Busy Builders," BRERIP v. 1, n. 46 (October 11, 1884), p. 2.

The parlors are cabinet trimmed. $9,500 is the price at which they are held, for which sum two have already been sold.
