FRIENDS Testimony:

The Preservation Committee at FRIENDS applauds both the design team and the board of 1185 Park Avenue for their proposal to replace two 1950s security guard booths underneath the building’s neo-Gothic portal. This handsome proposal is non-obtrusive and designed with high quality materials, and is therefore a great improvement over the current booths. FRIENDS supports Commission approval of this application.
