LPC Hearing: 11/12/13 (Approved)

FRIENDS Testimony:

The metal louvers the applicant has proposed to replace the existing pre-cast concrete screen at the rooftop bulkhead are simple and consistent with the mid-century Modern style of the white brick apartment house at 10 East 70th Street. The Preservation Committee at FRIENDS therefore supports approval of this application by the Commission.
