20200772 Rip Van Dam Exterior Modifications Correspondance Preservation Foundation November 4,2020 Ms. Tamie Ehinger, Chair Design Review Commission jolt City Hall PRESERVATION 474 Broadway Saratoga Springs,NY 12866 4 'el RE:351-353 Broadway—Window Replacement and Roof Modifications Dear Tamie: The Saratoga Springs Preservation Foundation reviewed the application for window replacement and roof modifications at 351-353 Broadway. Both of the buildings are contributing buildings to the Broadway Historic District listed on the National Register of Historic Places. The circa 1815 structure located at 351 Broadway is Board of Directors the oldest commercial building located in Saratoga Springs. Joseph Westscott sold dry goods, Adam N.Favro groceries,crockery,and liquors at this location for two decades. Originally it was a two-story President Federal style building. A third story and Italianate details were most likely added in the 1870's. The structure became part of the Rip Van Dam Hotel in the 1920s. James Gold Vice President The structure at 353 Broadway was originally named the American Hotel,built by George Linda Harvey-Opiteck Wilcox in circa 1840. Similar to 351 Broadway,the structure was originally built in the Secretary Greek Revival style and was significantly altered in the 1870's in the Italianate style. It was Dmitriy Yermolayev again altered circa 1923 when it was renamed the Rip Van Dam Hotel. At that time the front Treasurer porch was reconstructed in the Colonial Revival style, the first floor round arches were added, Matthew Veitch and the wall surface was changed to resemble stonework. Past President The Foundation is pleased that the facades of both buildings will be repaired and preserved. Jaime Butler The Foundation does not object to the proposed roof modifications at 353 Broadway, the Caroline Cardone Giovanna D'Orazio removal of the rear windows at 351 Broadway,or the window replacement of the windows of Steven Dodds the primary facades of 351 and 353 Broadway as those have been previously replaced. Sandra Fox However,the Foundation has concerns about the replacement of the three original six-over- JohnLiHaller six south facingwindows of the rear of 353 Broadway, the onlyremainingportion of the Liz Israel Samantha Kercull 1860's addition that was demolished in 2007. The Foundation respectfully requests that the Douglas Kerr Design Review Commission request documentation that those windows cannot be repaired. Richard King Should theynot be able to be repaired,theyshould be replaced with six-over-six windows not Stephen Kyne p p William McCarthy one-over-one windows. Dorothy Rogers-Bullis Cindy silence The Foundation appreciates the investment the owner is makingin these significant historic Jason Thomas ppr structures on Broadway.
