EXTERIOR PRESERVATION

NEW YORK, NY

 

Pomander Walk, a 1921 complex of two- and three-family houses was constructed based on the scenery designs of Pomander Walk, a popular stage musical of the day. The rows of brick and stucco houses are meant to resemble an old London street, complete with roofs and false half-timbering.

The complex is an individually designated New York City Landmark, so all work was subject to approval by the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission. The exterior preservation work included masonry and stucco restoration and rebuilding. The wood doors were reconstructed and replaced. The Lastly, the coating at the wood doors and windows was removed, and the doors and windows were repainted.
