Trustees of Gramercy Park:

Gramercy Park Historic District plaque vandalism and repairs

In June , someone attempted to steal the Gramercy Park Historic District plaque on the south side fence. 

Our Historic Preservation expert Gabriel Popian took the following steps to restore and securely re-attach the plaque:

  • Structural work - Drilled out old screws, permanently welded bronze treaded rods at each corner
     
  • Surface Restoration - Welding heat burned the paint finish and oxidized the plaque, so surface was cleaned of old paint, patina applied, lettering polished, and corrosion inhibitor lacquer applied
     
  • Installation - Two corner bars were installed to secure plaque in place with special nuts, preventing thieves from accessing the bolts.
