West 126th Street between Lenox and 7th Avenue has gone through a bout of major renovations in the past 5 years and now the block almost appears brand new.  Many walking on this section of Central Harlem might have previously noticed just the many abandoned shells on the street and not much else.  To those with less imagination, the thought would have been to tear everything down but the value of the brownstone seems to have held up in recent years.  Walking by the same intersection today, one might realize that the unique cast iron details on the stoops have all been fixed up and that the older designs are aesthetically more pleasing than some of the modern updates at some of the other homes.
