The Iconic Dakota, Built in 1884, Is Getting Some Work Done

New, 11 comments

At 131 years old, who wouldn't need a little work? The Dakota isn't exempt from aging—or from the disappoint of its visitors, but that's another story—and as such appears to be undergoing some routine maintenance. A tipster sent photos of the scaffolding-sheathed landmark on West 72nd Street at Central Park West, prompting a look at the building's permits on file with the Department of Buildings that say—phew—it's only having some light work done on its roof and facade, as well as having some interior partitions moved. Fear not, folks; nothing's really changing, or likely will ever really change, at the shrine of John Lennon.
