New Cornices for 7th Avenue Properties

446 and 448 7th Avenue before and after shots of wooden cornice restoration.

Two different property owners.
One architect.
One contractor.
One sidewalk shed. link

If my memory serves me right, they tweeked the original design by adding two additional brackets.  The original (7 corbel brackets instead of nine), would have been similar to what you still see next door on the "Tumor Building".

Buildings at Work
"The Scaffold Saety Team"

Buildings at Work is a new series that provides an inside look at the New York City Department of Buildings, where specialized teams of architects, engineers, inspectors and administrators are dedicated to ensuring the safe and lawful use of more than 975,000 buildings and construction sites throughout the city.  Very nice photography, I might add.
