FRIENDS' Testimony:

The Preservation Committee at FRIENDS finds the sensitive, thoughtful restoration of this building to be completely appropriate. In particular, we applaud the approach to the simple rear fa├žade featuring wood sash. If anything were to be improved, the Committee would prefer a wooden door at the main entrance, akin to the door at neighboring 51 East 67th Street.

Thank you.
