Condo Conversion Underway at “Superman’s” Standish Arms Hotel

The Standish Arms Hotel in Brooklyn Heights is being converted into a 31-unit condo building by its new owners, DDG and Westbrook Properties. Originally built in 1903, the hotel has achieved fictional fame both as Clark Kent’s Metropolis residence in the “Superman” comics and as the Boston location of Willy Loman’s affair in “Death of a Salesman.”
