Formerly the premier retirement home for merchant seamen in the 19th and early 20thcenturies, this Minard Lafever-designed self-sustaining community includes five Greek Revival "temples" that overlook New York Harbor. This preservation project focused on the centerpiece of the five buildings - Building C - which was the most historically significant. Both its interior and exterior are individually listed on the National Register of Historic Places.
Matthew Grove and Lisa Dall'Olio served as two of a three member team who were responsible for the preparation of architectural drawings for the restoration and adaptive reuse project, while employed by Cabrera-Barricklo, Architects.
