☞ REVIVE: Progress at 192 Lenox Avenue
"A crew was inside removing debris and the wood over the second floor window has been removed. I had the opportunity to walk through this building last year and the inside is in very good shape from some preliminary work that had been performed recently. All the interior brick was repointed and every floor was framed out with new metal studs for floor-through apartments. There is also a new roof. It would be great if someone is going forward and redoing this building."
We checked out DOB permits for this local landmark in the Mount Morris Park Historic District and the conversion appears to be for a 4-unit residential model. This section of Lenox just south of 120th Street has some amazing architecture but appears to have had a few shells laying around dormant for some times. Let's hope this one gets fixed up sooner than later.
