PRESERVATION AND RESTORATION OF THE OLDEST THEATER ON BROADWAY
The New Victory Theater, built in 1900 by Oscar Hammerstein as the Theater Republic is New York’s oldest active theater. The theater saw changes in its ownership, name and architectural style and detailing over time. It was completely restored nearly two decades ago. Easton Architects continues to oversee the Cyclical Restoration Program for the theater. Work includes restoration of the exterior brick, sandstone and terracotta ornament and materials, the wood doors, cast stone staircase and copper cornice. The interior work includes conservation and preservation of the ornate architectural features and finishes.
