Upper East Side Historic District

A neo-Renaissance style row house designed by Rose & Stone and built in
1893-94. Application is to legalize the installation of rooftop mechanical
equipment installed in non-compliance with Landmarks Preservation
Commission permits.

CB8 Hearing: 12/17/12 (Approved)
LPC Hearing: 2/5/13 (Approved)

FRIENDS Testimony: The rooftop mechanical equipment at 22 East 72nd Street is minimally visible and therefore appropriate. The Preservation Committee at FRIENDS appreciates the diligence of the Landmarks Preservation Commission but regrets that an element included in the original proposal was required to undergo the public process for a second time. FRIENDS supports the Commission’s approval of this application.
