FRIENDS' Testimony:

It should be noted that since the architect was unable to photograph the building without scaffolding or assemble a mock-up on the roof, it is difficult to determine the true visibility of the bulkhead. While computer generated models can provide an understanding, without a physical mockup or photographs it is hard to comment on the bulkhead. It does appear, though, that the bulkhead will only have a small amount of visibility, and its limestone-colored exterior will blend in with other existing rooftop additions and neighboring party walls. FRIENDS can support this application, provided that the bulkhead is minimally visible.

Thank you.
