Kitchen is a converted 1921 Tierney. Bought out and shut down during expansion of Columbia University, who have pledged to preserve and move the interior. Former Gibb’s. The Mountain View section was reportedly moved and saved in whole, to be refurbished and places in new university development in Manhattanville. The Tierney kitchen was too far gone to save in whole, but portions were saved to be donated to other restorations projects, including parts of the ceiling, light fixtures, floor tiles, and other materials.
