Preparing for the Return of the Historic Harlem Fire Watchtower this Summer

Harlemites and preservationists were delighted to receive the recent news that the historic Harlem Fire Watchtower, removed from the Acropolis overlooking Marcus Garvey Park in 2015 for restoration, will be reinstalled in the Summer of 2019.  A staging area has already been prepared for trucks, and sheds have been constructed for equipment at the base of the Acropolis. Re-assembly of this landmark structure now has an anticipated completion date.

As of today, we noticed that the historic bell returned ~ with protective cover, placed inside the Watchtower.
