Status as of April 20th, 2010: LATEST NEWS
In 2009, the applicant received a permit from the Commission to strip the existing paint and expose the original brick. However, once work began, it was discovered that the paint was actually a pigmented cementitious material that could not be removed without damaging the brick. With this application, therefore, the applicant sought to amend the original permit to allow for cleaning and repainting of the brick.
A public hearing on this application took place at the Landmarks Preservation Commission on April 20th, 2010. The application was approved, though the Commission asked that some of the house’s details (i.e. lintels, door, door surround) be painted a color other than dark grey, as was previously approved. They thought that the dark color obliterated the historic details, especially against the bright facade.
