Feeling a bit lonely and misplaced, Poplar St is an isolated segment which holds a myriad of buildings. Beginning with public garden and a series of new homes on the north side, the block is balanced by construction and abandoned lots on the south side.
The most interesting thing on the block is perhaps the abandoned 84th Precinct building. Boarded up and looking awfully dull, there are plans to redevelop them into market-rate apartments.
With the street ending at an impassable wall, there's an unavoidable feeling of being blocked in. This isn't a common feeling for Brooklyn Heights, which typically feels quaint and airy.
