Dusk in Sheepshead Houses

The Sheepshead Bay/Nostrand Houses housing projects are located in the Sheepshead Bay section of Brooklyn, New York, bounded by Nostrand Avenue, Bragg St., Avenue V and Avenue X. Avenue W and Batchelder Street run through the development to divide it into a four block complex. All of its 34 buildings are six stories high. Some have lobbies, others do not. Buildings located west of Batchelder Street are labeled as Sheepshead Bay Houses and buildings located east of Batchelder Street are labeled as Nostrand Houses but they are operated as one housing complex.
