With help from New York, a well-known set of stairs are getting an upgrade.
"This will pay entirely for the new stairs, both the side entrances and the main entrance," said Supervisor Joseph H. Emminger.
The building, erected in 1936 at the corner of Delaware Avenue and Delaware Road and designed by renowned architect E.B. Green, was named to the National Register of Historic Places in 2013.
But its historic designation has meant that repairs to the stairs on three sides of the building, require special – and costly – consideration.
