Central Park West Townhouse Restoration

Central Park West Townhouse Returned To Its Former Glory 
After a fire and insensitive rehab this CPW gem is restored

248 Central Park West, after restoration
248 Central Park West is a five-story townhouse constructed in 1887 to the design of Edward B. Angell. The building is a masterful example of its type and aside from its attractive and delicately balanced form, exhibits architectural stone carving of the highest caliber. The conservation of the stone bas-reliefs, along with the entire façade, represents an important achievement given their singular quality.
