Dorothy Gets Ready For Her Starring Role

In an effort to document the unique work performed by Boston Valley Terra Cotta, filmmaker Peter McGennis traveled to New York City to capture one of the original “Dorothy” structures that is still in tact on the building located at 150 Nassau. As visible in the photos below the structure has been strapped back to prevent any pieces from coming loose prior to their removal and replacement with the new replicas manufactured by BVTC.

Peter and his crew were treated to incredible views of the city, including the Woolworth Building, visible in this photo.

The structures are 20 stories up, and therefore from the street the incredible detail in Dorothy’s face, hands, hair and folds of her dress are easily missed.
