Boston Valley Terra Cotta’s work on the restoration of 5 Tudor City Place in New York City was featured in a segment on NYC’s PIX11 News. Tudor City is a 1927 apartment complex located at 2nd avenue and 42nd street adjacent to the United Nations Headquarters.
The new terra cotta statues have been fabricated by Boston Valley Terra Cotta. Artists work by hand with clay and plaster molds to create new gargoyles that should last another 75 years.
