Town House-Central Park West
NYC
Custom Bent Mahogany and Oak Windows

This landmark building is one of three remaining 19th century townhouses bordering Central Park in NYC.  The exterior of the building was meticuoulsy restored under the skillful direction of Ray Pepi and his team at Building Conservation Associates.  Wood Window Workshop made the double hung wood windows to match the originals in almost every detail except for the introduction of laminated and insulated glass in the flat units added to improve their energy performance and to attenuate sound.
