Dinanda Nooney's project looked inside Brooklyn before it was the cool (and expensive) borough for the hipster elite, crisscrossing neighborhoods to look inside real people's homes. Nooney died in 2004, but her daughter Jill told BuzzFeed that "she would love the fact the images are getting some play." You can look at 576 of her photographs online at the New York Public Library site.
