Lost Park Slope

Time for another edition of "Lost Park Slope".

The mansion shown below is in the process of being demolished. Some of the doors and windows are boarded up, and a chute for debris drops from a window on the right side.

Where in Park Slope did this mansion once stand? Who designed it, when, and for whom? When was it demolished?:

This is (or, more accurately, was) the Feltman Mansion at Eighth Avenue and Carroll Street, torn down in the late 1940s/50s (I believe). Charles Feltman, of course, was the owner of Coney Island's famous Feltman's - which (if indeed true) is best known for having invented the hot dog.

Sorry - not certain of the architect nor the date of construction, but I am otherwise pretty certain on the identification.
