Architectural Voyeurism: What lies beneath the wrappings.

Coming Down.  During the process of demolition these 4th Avenue houses have been stripped bare of their aluminum overcoats revealing their century old stick-built facades.


Required green painted plywood construction fence protects pedestrians from debris.  Patched fenestration exposed.

Windsor Terrace home its facade exposed waiting restoration and revival

Cornice exposed.

Knock it down (bare hands will probably do) and build something that won't incinerate it's occupants.

Those old dumps are death traps.
