August 2005: Going Down Memory Lane

August 1, 2005: This is my first experience with having a brownstone stripped. The job was started on August 1, 2005 and ended on December 9, 2006.

My neighbor and I received pretty large grants from NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission to strip our houses.

It looks as it did in 1899, when the house was built.

Its been restored to look as it did in 1899.
