FRIENDS Testimony:

While there are likely other design options to increase the height of the cast iron railing at the third floor of 15 East 70th Street, the proposed geometric design is classically inspired and appropriate to the Beaux-Arts townhouse. The Preservation Committee at FRIENDS supports Commission approval of this application.
