The Charlie Parker Residence getting jazzed up

Heh, heh -- oh, forgive me for that headline...

Anyway, over on Avenue B near 10th Street, workers yesterday began chipping away at the exterior of the onetime residence of Charlie Parker... Not quite sure exactly of the extent of the work just yet...

Have no fear, though... nothing tacky will happen here... As I borrowed from the Web site: The Charlie Parker Residence was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in l994 by the U.S. Department of the Interior. In l999 the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission designated the Charlie Parker Residence a New York City Landmark.

By the way, apartments in this building hit the market every so often... they run upwards of $4,000 per month.
