First a fire, now a naked building: 740 Park Avenue to shed facade for repairs

therealdeal.comOne of the most exclusive addresses in New York City is also a hot mess.

Nearly two months after a fire ripped through a sixth-floor apartment at 740 Park Avenue, the Upper East Side co-op is being stripped of its limestone facade. The city this week approved a permit to remove the iconic Art Deco building’s stone facade to replace the anchors holding it in place, according an application filed with the city’s Department of Buildings. The application for the work was filed two months after officials were called to the building in July on reports that parts of its facade were crashing to the ground.
