448 W. 50TH STREET

We've previously written about the eight-building co-op on West 50th Street that discovered a termite infestation that threatened a building's structural integrity: how it was discovered, what if signified and the co-op's overall actions. Now we look at the nitty-gritty of exactly what steps the co-op board and its professionals took to do the job.

An eight-building, 54-unit complex in Hell's Kitchen that was built during the late 19th and early 20th centuries recently discovered that it had a major, potentially disastrous infestation of termites. The discovery, belated though it was, may have saved one of the five-story walk-ups from structural collapse.
