|Newly constructed copper cornice meets the 109 year old cornice|
Outside, Morningside Development has been hard at work with tuckpointing, installing a new roof and repairing the copper cornice that was sagging in sections and in danger of falling completely off.
Take a good look at the copper cornice as this is how the cornice would have looked shortly after construction was completed in 1905. The green cornice we know so well is the result of how copper patinas over time. We assume that it will be helped along in the aging process so that it matches the rest of the cornice. Either way, it looks gorgeous.
We love seeing buildings in Uptown brought back to their former glory.
