One of the last elements to be restored on the facade of the Corn Exchange Building is the copper cornice that wraps around the border of the roof.  Walking by the intersection of 125th and Park Avenue over the weekend, we noticed that this important detail was being installed at the upper level. The window frames of the dormer windows also will have copper elements and it looks like both are now being worked on simultaneously.  Once the metal roof components are added in, then the slate tiles will be one of the final touches needed to finish up the exterior other than installing the windows.  For the complete rendering of the plans for this Harlem landmark, check out our past post: LINK
