New Steiny-D Trellis Made of Coney Island Boardwalk


In a very cool example of sustainable adaptive reuse, the new wooden trellis outside Steiny-D is made of salvaged wood from the recent, pre-Sandy reconstruction of the Coney Island boardwalk. Architect David Hollenberg says that the Ipe wood (dat botany!) is a serious improvement on the cedar that preceded it, which basically got destroyed by the charming climbing wisteria vines that gave the trellis its romantic whimsy. Get iped-up because the renovation will be complete this summer!
