TOUR THE PROJECT
Ellis Island was abandoned, vandalized and badly deteriorated - In 1982 Architects Byer Blinder Belle planned a complete historic restoration. Where possible all oriiginal designs and elements were restored. The wood windows were mostly missing or beyond repair. Our goal was to provide restoration and replication, upgrading glazing to insulated glass. We recieved a commendation in 1990 for our completed work .
