With funding from the ample reserve fund, plans are underway to re-landscape the front garden, as well as update the halls and stairways.
The Fitzroy rows of grand Italianate townhouses were built in the mid-1850s and referred to as Millionaires Row at the time. These wonderful landmark buildings are protected by the New York City Landmark Preservation Commission.
