History of MetroTech
• MetroTech Center occupies 10 blocks in Downtown Brooklyn.
• This was one of the earliest sections of Brooklyn to be settled, but unlike prosperous
Brooklyn Heights with its grand brick and stone houses, the MetroTech area initially
developed largely with frame houses and other modest buildings.
• Residential development began in the 1830s. The streets, on the edge of the growing city of
Brooklyn were soon lined with a mix of wood and brick houses, most in the Greek Revival
style of architecture.
• In the second half of the 19th century, the character of Downtown residential streets changed
dramatically as nearby Fulton Street became a major shopping district.
