FRIENDS' Testimony:

We are pleased to see this iconic Breuer building housing yet another Upper East Side institution. FRIENDS’ Preservation Committee is not opposed to the sign, and notwithstanding the lengthy duration of the proposed signage, we believe it to be appropriate for both the building style and function.
