Bresee's facade removal begins in Oneonta

Defunct Oneonta Store Facade Removal

Today began the facade removal on Bresee's Oneonta Department Store. Oneonta firm Eastman Associates is removing the aluminum covering from the brick building. The store had been a fixture in downtown Oneonta since it opened in 1899, but has been closed for about 10 years. A rehabilitation and reuse project is planned for the building.

The entire facade, which had been installed in 1959, came down on Sunday, 11/22/09. It took 10 hours start to finish.
