Last night we were doing the usual: wandering around looking for one-story buildings for our amateur photography project. Sadly, we chose to hunt for our prey in the West Village, which has a dearth of short structures. If only we had consulted Property Shark before setting out! If you select their "stories on lot" overlay, it tells you how tall each building is-- and two seconds of inspection shows the lowest neighborhoods are Red Hook, Gowanus, and the area around the Newtown Creek. Hunt's Point is also pretty flat.
