FRIENDS' Testimony:

There is photographic evidence of an awning existing at 4 East 62nd Street at the approximate time of designation of the Upper East Side Historic District. Although the awning was replaced without an LPC permit, the current awning is similar in design, materiality, and color to the previous awning and is consistent with other awnings in the historic district. The FRIENDS’ Preservation Committee therefore recommends Commission approval of this application.
