Modern Home in Midtown at 9 Carey Road

There’s quite a bit that impresses me about this home – the level of finish and very clever integration of balconies from upper levels for example – but my overwhelming response is to the brick.  I greatly appreciate modern homes expressed in brick, not just for their contextual resonance, but for the boldness and durability that brick implies.  And geez, it’s a handsome brick.
