    Dear Clients, Business Associates, and Friends:   I am writing with the hope that you and your families are safe and dry, and that power has been restored to your homes and offices after our two most recent storms.  Our offices were without power for a week, a minor inconvenience compared to what many suffered throughout our region.  We are lucky enough to be back up and running, and we remain on call to help with any recovery effort you may require at this time.  Our architects, staff, and network of trusted and reliable contractors and trade professionals are available to assist you with any emergency property assessments and repairs resulting from the strong winds and flooding sustained in our area, including façade damage, roof damage, or any other building related issues that you may be faced with at this time.  If we can be of any assistance, please let us know. We can be reached at our offices, (212) 995-2464 or send email to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it..  Sincerely,  Scott Henson

  • VICTORY! Riverside-West End Extension I an official NYC Historic District

    As of yesterday afternoon, the Riverside-West End Historic District Extension I is the Upper West Side's newest official Historic District!

    With our colleagues at the West End Preservation Society, New York Landmarks Conservancy, Historic Districts Council, and a league of West Side neighborhood associations -- not to mention  stalwart West Side Council Member Gale Brewer and her staff! -- LANDMARK WEST! has helped to guide this critical issue forward. Following public hearings of the Landmarks Preservation Commission, the City Planning Commission, the City Council Subcommittee on Landmarks, and the City Council's Land Use Committee (unanimous support at each of these important votes!), it all came down to the full 51-member City Council. By a vote of 48 to 0, the City Council upheld the unanimous decision of the NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) to preserve one of New York's most remarkable ensembles of historic structures in the City.  Congratulations to all who dedicated their time and energy to this important neighborhood issue!
