Anyone looking for a suburban-style mall has to travel to the outer edges of New York City, but there are a few sprawling commercial centers for New Yorkers who can drive to the southern reaches of Brooklyn.

The major expansion of a Brooklyn residential structure was met with skepticism by the Landmarks Preservation Commission at its public hearing on Tuesday. The structure in question is 105 8th Avenue, located between Carroll Street and President Street in the Park Slope Historic District. The proposal called for a rear extension that would eliminate recesses, plus a large rooftop addition.
