United States Postal Service
This vintage 1937 Post Office, located on the Upper East Side of Manhattan, is a classic example of some of the beautiful New Deal architecture constructed by the Postal Service in the New York Area. The exterior masonry and original wood windows were seriously in need of restoration. Because of the CTS Group’s experience with both postal operations and historic preservation, the firm was selected for the project.
Relevant Project Data:
- The project included brick masonry, limestone, and granite repair and cleaning, resetting of existing granite stairs and the customer entrances, construction of an accessible ramp, and replacement of the existing steel framed windows on the north side of the building.
