A Stratford Steel project makes it into the NY Times

Working with one of NYC’s oldest and highly regarded landmark restoration company Nicholson & Galloway, we fabricated structural stainless steel parts that went into the full restoration of the Marcus Garvey Fire Watchtower in Harlem NY. This tower is the only surviving cast-iron watchtowers placed throughout NYC (one of eleven). These towers were for volunteers to watch for fires of wooden buildings that made up much of NYC, and the volunteers would spread the word via ringing the bell.
