"I just did a similar project on 64th street and Madison. Restoring / recreating a Queen Anne building is not insanely expensive. Just be thoughtful about brick selection, cast stone can look exactly like real stone if you take time to really work out the mix and molds properly. There are firms that still make metal cornices, just like in the photo at reasonable cost. The slate shingle roof could be replaced with less expensive recycled rubber shingles (cast from molds made from slate shingles)....It's an undesirable site due to the train tracks - a smart and/or beautiful building will elevate its revenue stream."?Floating-World [Corn Exchange Plans Not Well Received by Landmarks]
