This winter’s weather has left behind some damage and 42 Woodside Ave. is bearing the brunt of it.
The building, located in the town center, houses both Salon Luxo and D & J’s Busy Bees Preschool, and has suffered some exterior deterioration due to the frigid temperatures and typical aging associated with old buildings.
The damage is on the upper left corner of the 1,846 square-foot structure and is due to be repaired this week, requiring the assistance of both a mason and an engineer, who will ensure that the veneer is fastened properly.
While the structure of the building itself is safe to occupy, there will be scaffolding set up on the exterior of the building, securing the area and preventing any injuries from fallen debris.
Families of the children who attend D & J’s Busy Bees Preschool have been notified to enter through the back entrance until the project is complete. Neighboring Center Café, 42 Woodside Ave. was originally built in 1920 and has been utilized as an office building over the years providing a home for a variety of different businesses including: Sandy Paws Pet Spa and Boutique, The Eye Center of Winthrop, Homer’s Candy Shop, Samuel’s Pharmacy, Solari Hair Salon, Woolworth, Winthrop Family Center, Doll Up, and Great International and National Travel, Inc.
