York Looks For Time In All The Right Places

June 23, 2010

What's The Time Now?

Not too long ago, before the ubiquity of cell phones, PDAs, computers, wrist watches, pocket watches, and clocks of all sorts, the church was an important part of telling the time. This beautiful church clock tower that York Restoration Corporation walked by more than a few days ago probably was once relied upon to tell lots of people the time. Lovely!

Though it’s important to be on time, York wouldn’t mind avoiding the tether of cell phones, wrist watches, and other time-tellers. It’s nice to lose yourself and lose track of time while on a walk, as York did on its last stroll through Manhattan, only to be greatfully reminded of the hour by the happenstance of a church.

Ah well. Perhaps York Restoration Corporation was built for a different era. But then again, older eras didn’t have power grouters and Sawsalls!

A Nice Church Spotted By York Restoration Corporation Near NYU

Church Image From York Restoration Corporation

So many beautiful churches in Manhattan. This one’s down by NYU, where York was walking around last week.

York Restoration Corporation hasn’t had a chance to restore many churches yet, and it’s a shame. We’d love to show off our one-of-a-kind restoration skills on such an important, permanent stage.

Some day. It’ll happen, we know it. Until then, we’ll keep enjoying these churches, cathedrals, and monasteries from afar, secretly rebuilding and restoring them in our minds.

York Restoration Corporation Grooves on a Classic Building

June 4, 2010

York Restoration Corporation

Mmm. That top floor. Creepy, right? Like something from Hitchcock’s classic, “Psycho.” Looks like there ought to be the faint outline of a cross-dressing, murderous, hotel-running Anthony Perkins looking out onto the street.

Not to denigrate the building! It’s a classic building. You know it’s solid, if a little dingy, and probably filled to its rafters with locals who’ve lived in the same apartment for 32 years. They who nod in the hall as they pass one another, occasionally share exciting family news, live with two cats and a cockatoo, eat too much salt, hoard the razor-thin ovals of nearly used-up soap bars inside a plastic bag under the sink so that, a few months and many bars of soap later, those little leftover soap slivers can be packed together to form a “new” Voltron soap bar.

This building says, “buy local.”

“Never try to lift more than you weigh.”

“Cut up all but one of your credit cards, then put that last credit card in a shallow bowl of water. Stick that in the freezer. Whenever you get the urge to buy, pull it out and wait for it to melt. Chances are, the urge to buy will’ve subsided by the time it’s completely unfrozen. Win!”

“Take your date for a walk and a picnic in the park rather than dinner and a movie. Unless you can’t hold a conversation. In that case, always suggest movies. If all else fails, ask a lot of questions and pray you’re attractive.”

Yes, I’d take that sensible building. If it were a woman, and I were dating, I’d have no qualms about taking her home to mother (so long as she cleaned up a bit beforehand.)

And she weren’t the female Anthony Perkins.

York’s Restoration Corporation + Restoring Earth!

Building restoration experts and Earth restoration experts are teaming up to raise awareness about Earth Day, and more specifically – Earth Hour!

The hope is that by showing how a little change – by doing something as simple as being aware and turning off non-essential lighting when it’s not needed – we can save hundreds of thousands of KwH every day! And that means less burning of fossil fuels, less waste, less of everything that makes pollution, greed, and death in the world.

Vietnam electricity demand fell 500,000 kWh during Earth Hour 2010, which was three times larger than the first time the country joined the event in 2009. Toronto experienced a 15% decline in usage in 2009. It’s amazing!

Well done, everyone! Building restoration experts are natural conservationalists. I’m gonna go flex my muscles in a mirror (with the lights off, of course!)
