Ultimate Brooklyn Artist's Loft, a Former Union Hall, For Sale

A painter and master of large-scale installations that The New York Times called "one of the most successful artists in the 1970s" is selling her spectacular live/work residence in Brooklyn. About a decade ago, conceptual artist Jennifer Bartlett bought the two-story building—which was once a union hall for for the Candy & Confectionery Workers Local 452 but later served other functions, like a preschool—for $3 million. A 2008 "multimillion dollar" renovation by architect David Berridge resulted in 5,500-square-foot space that is largely open plan, with lots of exposed brick and massive windows that look out onto an L-shaped landscaped garden overrun with greenery.
