Photography from our visit to EverGreene Architectural Arts in Industry City, Brooklyn for 6sqft's new feature "Where I Work"...


"On Monday evening, the Historic Districts Council will present their 29th annual Landmarks Lion Award to Jeff Greene of EverGreene Architectural Arts, one of the nation’s foremost experts in specialty contracting for both traditional and new, innovative techniques for restoring and conserving murals, ornamental plaster, and decorative finishes. “Jeff has been pivotal in restoring some of New York City’s most beloved landmarks to their proper glory,” said HDC’s executive director Simeon Bankoff. And indeed, this is true; their commissions include the recent restoration of the New York Public Library’s Rose Reading Room, Brooklyn’s Loew’s Kings Theater, the Eldridge Street Synagogue, and the McKim, Mead and White-designed University Club, where the event will be held, and this only scratches the surface of their hundreds of projects throughout the country."

We are in a sporting mood with the NY Yankees ⚾️playing tonight in the post-season at Yankee Stadium in the Bronx

That is why we are highlighting Varsity Sneakers 👟Shoes 👞. We love the #vintage #signage this #storefront has, especially because it includes the word "DUNGAREES" 👖. We also are fans of this #Bronx store's large window displays, which you rarely see in newer shops as they tend to maximize interior square footage and not care about large product window displays.
