If you haven’t walked past the Fisherman of Men Church (at 3641 Georgia) lately, you probably haven’t noticed their latest improvements. Currently, they are in the process of painting their arched entryways purple and installing what appear to be a tree-inspired decorative feature in the archways.

Readers may recall that the church is located in the former York Theater building, and that a recent historic landmark nomination of the building failed largely due to the Fisherman of Men’s opposition to the nomination despite a favorable HPO staff report recommending the nomination be approved.

I’d be curious to see what residents think about these improvements. Do these aesthetic changes to the York building enhance the Georgia Avenue streetscape?

    I guess its nice that they are trying to make it look better, but I don’t like the style. I’m holding out that the building will be recognized for its historical significance to the area and will be preserved in the future. I read that most of the congregation does not live in the neighborhood anyway.

    I like the new window ornaments. I’ve never thought that the building was particularly attractive anyway (nor was it in the 1920s) so whatever they want to do with it is fine with me.

    Mike… I work in a building that is on the historic preservation list… maintenance costs and repairs can be both burdensome and expensive
