The preservation awards ceremony continues! Today we speak with Erinn McDonnell of the village of Sea Cliff in Nassau County. Erinn managed the restoration of their 1931, Tudor revival-style firehouse on Roslyn Avenue, challegened to restore the building's distinctive steel casement windows without disrupting the operations of a working firehouse.
With a mix of funding support from state and local government, the village was able to revitalize this important piece of the local landscape. Erinn tells us about the decisions that had to be made, the story that had to be told, and the stubborness it took to keep it all on track.
