The Studebaker Building, 1469 Bedford Avenue (aka 737-745 Sterling Place) 
Tooker and Marsh, architects. Designated as a landmark December 19, 2000. 
Built in 1920, the Studebaker Building is one of the few automobile showrooms
remaining on Brooklyn's once thriving Automobile Row, the stretch of Bedford
Avenue running north and south from Fulton Street to Empire Boulevard in Crown
Heights. The neo-Gothic stile building is brick and white terra cotta made by the Atlantic
Terra Cotta Works, the largest fabricator of architectural terra cotta in the world from
the turn-of-the-century to the Depression. Cool features of the building include
segmental arched openings on the fourth floor, batllemented parapet with black and
white terra-cotta wheel emblems, and neo-Gothic style details including moldings,
colonettes, and figural sculpture. An excellent example of a commercial terra-cotta
clad structure which served as a company icon, the Studebaker Building still has the
original terra-cotta design inscribed with the name "Studebaker" in black cursive on a
diagonal banner across the wheel emblem, an image that was used by the corporation
on buildings all over the U.S.People live on the ground and second floors. A good building
in a now wack neighborhood

Ebbett's Field houses in Crown Heights - home of the Brooklyn Dodgers from 1912 through 1957. 
They played at Ebbet's Field for 68 seasons and after 21 years of losses the team won the National
Pennant in 1941. The parade was attended by over two million people. From 1947 to 1956 the team
 went on to win six more National Pennants. In 1957, they left for California and become the L.A. Dodgers.
In 1960, Ebbets Field was demolished
