Fort Lee, NJ Murals to Be Restored

Four murals documenting Fort Lee’s history will be restored and exhibited in Fort Lee, New Jersey.  The murals were painted by Henry Schnakenberg and displayed in the city’s post office, shortly after its 1938 construction.  The post office, however, will soon be demolished and replaced with a new post office.  The city will preserve the murals, restore them, and exhibit them either in the new post office or an alternative public space.  Click here for the details and a video about the project.
