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.
This will be an ongoing project, show casing examples of various forms of Tuckpointing. the root of this project will be based in Ithaca, NY but when possible I will try and incorporate other examples in the central NY region.
For today, here are some pictures from next door to Gimme Coffee at N Cayuga and Cascadilla streets.
