Renovation Upgrades Support Housing for New York City’s Vulnerable
The renovation also included new spaces for community activities and service delivery. An internal courtyard, for years used primarily to store trash, was converted into a skylighted community room. The renovation added two fully outfitted communal kitchens and a meeting/dining room in the basement, where meals are served regularly and residents can prepare their own meals. A laundry room and library were added. The historic marble lobby was restored, and the building’s exterior was cleaned to reveal its original details.
