When the Christodora House became a Greek house

[Photos by Charlie Kerman]

In 1983, when the Christodora House on Avenue B was still abandoned, members of the Tau Delta Phi, Delta Eta Chapter at Cooper Union, placed their Greek letters on the west side atop the 17-floor building. Don't have a lot of details, such as how long the letters remained there. Long enough for a photo opp, of course. Photos of the letters crew are below. (Note the condition of the Christodora...)

First come, first serve.

They have fraternities in Cooper Union? I find that somewhat oxymoronic.

That brings back memories. I think I have the originals after the chapter went local three years ago.

BTW, different type of school = different type of fraternities
