With new vinyl siding on the front and every single window missing, the building at 3415 Falls Road appeared an unlikely candidate for any type of historic preservation project. Undaunted, the owner, Ezra Hercenberg, and his architect Julie Tice, charged in. They removed the vinyl to reveal original German siding, which they preserved in place. They repaired the porch, saving as much original material as they could, and they even were able to preserve the original cornice. The end result is a wonderfully restored historic structure that brings new life to the Hamden historic district.
