These buildings are marred by a horrible paint job and the removal of ornament from No. 237 (at right) and the cornices from both buildings, but at least we have a glimpse at another Hardenbergh work. I discovered these buildings in February 2007 by digging through building permits.

It looks as though the window ornament has been removed from the building on the right, No. 237.
