The Mansion

The sprawling Victorian mansions that dot Ditmas Park are not only of Brooklyn, but also of a totally other time and place. This particular mansion once belonged to novelist Joseph O’Neill and magazine editor Sally Singer, and is now a home to the Carver-Ryland family and their backyard fig farm. Having a farm in Brooklyn evokes the days when the borough was nothing but old homesteads and rambling houses, and this home embodies that history while looking to the future.
