Brooklyn, NY (PressExposure) November 18, 2009 -- Basonas Construction Corp is pleased to announce they are commencing on a new project in East Harlem, New York City.
Cristo Rey New York High School is 4-story Catholic college-preparatory school located at 112 East 106th Street next to St. Ceciliaâs church. Nestled in Spanish Harlem, also known as El Barrio, it is situated between the East River and Central park from 100th to 125th street. This lively and developing neighborhood has a rich history, and two celebrated cultural institutions, El Museo Del Barrio and the Museum of the City of New York.
Cristo Rey mentions, âOur ultimate goal is that our students will graduate from college and become professionals for others, transforming the world for the good of their families and societyâ.
Cristo Rey High School needed extensive exterior work. All the windows on the North face needed replacement along with lintel replacement. The front brownstone entrance and stoop are being replaced with new replica stones. Significant faÃ§ade masonry needs to be replaced. The front cast iron fence and railing will be restored using cast iron replicas. The west faÃ§ade is covered with stucco and will be replaced with matching brick masonry restoring it to its original condition. There is also custom mill work and restoration to stained glass windows.
