The New York City Council voted on Wednesday to create a new historic district in downtown Brooklyn. The skyscraper district doesn't equal the heights of Manhattan, but includes some notable neo-Gothic and neo-Romanesque architecture that was built around the turn of the 20th century. Landlords had opposed the creation of the district, saying it would increase repair costs, but the designation was ultimately approved.

Here's a tour of the new district, courtesy of the city's Landmarks Preservation Commission.
