680 Park Avenue Ribbon Cutting Ceremony
We celebrate the renovation of our building.
Over the past few years, we have worked to restore the building to its original beauty. We replaced the slate roof, restored the entrance portico and all ornamental stonework, repaired the balconies, and replaced all 100 original windows. Our Visual Arts Gallery now has natural light flooding the exhibition space.
We are pleased to share with you the beautiful work of architects, craftsmen, contractors, and consultants who have worked so carefully and diligently to completely restore 680 Park.
