UWS Lobby Gets Redone; Museum Celebrates the Street Grid

New, 8 comments

UPPER WEST SIDE?The 1922 building at 46 West 65th Street was originally designed by Carrere & Hastings, the same firm behind the New York Public Library. The folks at Katz Architecture were recently hired to give the lobby a makeover: new lighting, cleaned and patched walls and moldings, and a wrought iron door. Take a look above. [CurbedWire Inbox]

EAST HARLEM?The Museum of the City of New York's latest exhibition, "The Greatest Grid," "celebrates the 200th anniversary of the Commissioners' Plan of 1811," aka the document that established the street grid. In fact, one of the goodies on display is a hand-drawn map of the planned grid created by the commission in 1811. The exhibit runs through April 15. [CurbedWire Inbox]
