☞ REVIVE: 11 Mount Morris Park West

The landmark corner building at 11 Mount Morris Park West at 121st Street has had some scaffolding up on the side of the building in the past month or so and it appears that some general repairs are at hand for the south side of the building.  Permits were filed during the summer but the lack of protective netting had stalled the project for a short period of time.

From what can be gathered from the photo of the side of the building, it appears that the windows are the focus of the repairs but painting the brick facade might also be something considered going forward. Unfortunately the one feature that probably will not be restored in some time is the missing conical cupola on the corner turret tower. That architectural detail has been missing for some time and would probably be quite an investment to have it reconstructed once more.
