City unveils restoration of stone-paved street to 1840s condition | Community Spirit
Mayor Harry Tutunjian will join community and neighborhood leaders today at ribbon cutting for a historic street renovation.
Other than Manhattan’s Gramercy Park, Washington Place in Troy is the only privately owned and maintained park in New York State of its kind.
After falling into disrepair, this 310-foot-long street that borders Washington Park has been restored by neighborhood activists.The organization Friends of Washington Place began the $200,000 restoration project, removing each of the 35,000 Belgian block granite pavers, restoring them and then putting them back in place by hand.
The unveiling of the 1800s Belgian brick pavers will take place at 2 p.m. at Washington Place between 2nd and 3rd Streets.
