What’s all that work that’s been going on at the front gate of Broadmoor?

Some of you Madison Park, Washington Park, and Broadmoor residents might be wondering what’s all that work that’s been going on at the front gate of the Broadmoor neighborhood for the past 3 weeks? Well, it’s nothing more than some much needed tuckpointing and brick replacement. For those that don’t know what tuckpointing is, here’s an explanation: in building construction, technique of finishing masonry joints with a fine, pointed ridge of mortar, for decorative purposes, instead of the usual slightly convex finish in ordinary masonwork. The term is sometimes used for pointing (q.v.) as in masonry repair.

The project is set to finish next week.
