Tuckpointing: Simeon’s On the Commons Ithaca, NY

This was something I wanted to get to a long time ago but didn’t get around to. Simeon’s On the Commons shows evidence of Tuckpointing on its N Aurora st. facade. With the rebuild underway I am not sure if this section will be repointed, cleaned or otherwise remove the evidence of a once tuckpointed building or not. Either way, here are some photos from during the construction. one has been altered with highlights to see where it remains. hopefully at some point I can get a closeup prior to any work being done.
