Hopeful Upper East Side McMansions on Eve of Destruction

The Chetrit Group's mission to restore, renovate and enlarge six brownstones at 110-120 East 76th Street?turning them into three single-family mansions along the way?is on hold for now, but the Landmarks Preservation Commission did give the go-ahead for partial demolition of some of the structures. That work is about ready to kick off, based on fresh photos of the brownstone row between Lexington and Park. The demolition is due to deteriorating conditions in some of the townhouses, which were owned for decades by Lenox Hill Hospital. The rest of the proposed changes are coming back to LPC for what should be a lively hearing on April 13.
