While we regret that the stone detailing at 15 East 90th street cannot be restored to its original condition, we understand the circumstances that led to the current proposal. The applicant appears to have made a thorough investigation of the current condition of the stone details and the proposed solution will stabilize the portico from further deterioration.
The Preservation Committee at FRIENDS supports the application.
