9. Doughnut Plant at 245 Flatbush Ave, Brooklyn
Since Flatbush Avenue in Brooklyn is diagonal, a good amount of buildings off the street are triangle-shaped. The building where Doughnut Plant most recently took up shop is unique in the fact that it takes up the full plot of land, similar to the Flatiron Building.
The NYC Department of Buildings holds a certificate of occupancy as far back as 1931, potentially from when the building was first constructed. The “character and personality” of the building apparently helped convince the owners to open shop here, according to an interview with Brooklyn Paper. They recovered detailing from the original space and tried to pay homage to the building history with their design—looking at it as more of a “restoration project,” they told DNA Info.
