One of our city’s most knowledgeable and thoroughly engaging historians, Mosette Broderick, time-travels us back through the real estate development of the Upper West Side like few others can. Understand who built what where and when in a fast-moving, photo-packed talk that swings from the earliest days of the UWS through the various eras that brought us brownstone row houses and soaring apartment houses.
Upper West Side Renovation & Preservation
Wednesday, April 17th 6:30-7:45pm
Throughout PRESERV’s 25 years in building restoration, the firm has completed well over 50 projects on the Upper West Side. Carl Culbreth, Founder and President, will focus on five of these projects in particular: The Lucerne Hotel, The Hadrian, 280 West End Ave, 57 West 75th Street and a rowhouse on West 86th. The projects feature dramatic cornice restorations, entire façade repair and recoating, asphalt roof installation to simulate slate, terra cotta reinstallation, and more. Carl will share details of each along with progress photos, featuring a few fantastic UWS “before” and “afters” brought back to life!
