A fine-grained sandstone available in buff and olive. It was historically used in the construction of thousands of buildings in New York City such as the exterior of the Dakota Building at ground level and the trim details on the entire exterior, the interior of Albany State Legislature making up the North Staircase and in the Commons, the entire exterior of banks, and in the original construction of 18 arched bridges and Bethesda Terrace in Central Park. It was also extensively used in historical constructions in Boston and
other New England markets.
Historic Canadian applications include the original construction material and much of the restoration replacement stone on the New Brunswick Legistature, as well as a number of public, commercial and resedential buildings in the business sector of uptown Saint John, New Brunswick.
