American Museum of Natural History - Central Park West, NYC

Often hailed as the best example of Romanesque Revival architecture in New York City, the 77th Street façade of the American Museum of Natural History suffered significant deterioration since it was erected between 1891 and 1897.

For this massive three year project, York Scaffold Equipment Corp. was asked to scaffold the arches, masonry walls and elegant towers of this 700-foot-long building. Using both frame and system scaffolding, York provided access for workers restoring both the masonry and the 637 windows along the façade.

A combination of sidewalk shed, supported scaffolding and shoring allowed reconstruction of the sweeping staircase and monumental arch of the porte-cochere to be undertaken while the entrance remained open for use.
