An eclectic Georgian style apartment building built in 1927. Application is to legalize facade alterations, and the installation of windows, light fixtures, and intercom boxes, all without Landmarks Preservation Commission permits and to install through-the-wall air conditioning units.
PHOTOS OF THE APPLICATION:
The application is to legalize the removal of limestone at the base of the building (as can be seen in the ca. 1940 tax photo far below) and the installation of an intercom and light fixtures near the doorway. The applicant is also proposing to install through-the-wall air conditioning units and insert window dividers (as the existing double-hung windows were installed without LPC permits).
