Measured drawings of Hell’s Kitchen are on demand in the world of architecture. Hell’s Kitchen ditched its “Wild, Wild Midtown West” reputation in favor of a more artistic flair. Disgruntled artists and New Yorkers living the Bohemian Lifestyle are spilling out of over-crowded neighborhoods such as SoHo, the Village, and the Lower East Side and opting for properties in Midtown West. This neighborhood is a Historic District, so its old New York City charm still exists, and pending the completion of the Hudson Yards Redevelopment Program it will be easily accessible. One example of historic buildings in this neighborhood is shown below. BSC produced measured drawings for this property in 2012 and it sold in 2013. This West 55th Street building houses galleries and antique stores such as Hutter Auction Galleries. Check out more drawings on our site!
Theatre history for broadway lovers: do you know the history behind The Stephen Sondheim Theatre? This New York City landmark is formerly known as Henry Miller’s Theatre, built by and named for actor Henry Miller. The theatre was opened in 1918 with the play The Fountain of Youth. In 2010, it was revealed that the theatre would be renamed to The Stephen Sondheim Theatre after the American composer for his contributions to musical theatre for over 50 years. Below are some of the drawings BSC did for the theatre before its renaming including the gate, the lobby floor, lobby ceiling, and outside of the building!
