The Bailey Mansion up on St. Nicholas Place and 150th Street has been going through an extensive restoration process which included replacing cheap windows with architecturally correct ones. We noticed that the new observatory window had been revealed recently and that the new owners have now placed in details that probably existed originally. Many of these historic buildings have gone into disrepair so having new owners come in with the funds to fix them up is always great news for the neighborhood. More interesting details should be revealed in the future as the netting slowly comes down. Click on images to enlarge. Check out the intact interior in our past post: LINK
