EXTERIOR PRESERVATION

36 GRAMERCY PARK EAST, NEW YORK, NY

 

36 Gramercy Park East is a 1910 steel framed apartment building constructed in a flamboyant Gothic Revival style to the designs of James Riely Gordon. The building features a street elevation of richly detailed white glazed terra cotta with shield motifs, projecting grotesques, and over 120 putti.

Full restoration of the street façade included significant terra cotta unit replication and resetting, full façade cleaning, as well as roofing and parapet rebuilding. The entire roof level cornice was disassembled and reset. A significant percentage of existing material was salvaged, and the remainder was replicated in matching glazed architectural terra cotta. 36 Gramercy Park East is a designated New York City Landmark; as such, all work was reviewed and approved by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission Staff.
