An Italianate style rowhouse built c. 1871. Application is to replace the sidewalk.
CB8 Hearing: 05/18/15 (Approved)
LPC Hearing: 06/02/15 (Withdrawn)
Our Committee found the sidewalk reconstruction at 121 East 78th Street to be appropriate. The applicant’s re-setting of the existing bluestone, with in-kind replacement when necessary, is a sensitive approach to the sidewalk repairs needed. The expansion of the existing tree-pit, although an incursion into the public way, is acceptable as it is required to meet DOT regulations.
The Preservation Committee at FRIENDS supports the application.
