287 Broadway (NYC)

287 Broadway

“Prominently situated on a comer site, the 287 Broadway Building is notable for its combination of the ltalianate and French Second Empire styles as executed in cast iron, and one of the few surviving examples in New York City.” – From the 1987 NYCLPC Landmark Designation Report

Construction of a new building to the south of 287 Broadway has caused this historic structure to fail.  I was asked to prepare rectified photography and a point cloud file/drawing that will at once capture the existing conditions and composition of the cast iron facades – and to provide some precise measurements as to how severly the building is leaning and in what manner.
