All apartments in La Guardia Houses in Manhattan will get new plastic laminated closet doors under a $1.9 million contract recently awarded by the Board of the New York City Housing Authority (NYCHA).

The contract calls for replacing 6,718 closet doors of various sizes with 2,186 swing plastic laminate skin closet doors; 2,909 plastic laminate skin closet doors; 553 plastic skin sliding closet doors and 1,070 broom closet doors.

The contract was awarded to Fulton Building Company Inc. and is expected to take about seven months to complete.

La Guardia Houses on Manhattan's Lower East Side has nine buildings, 15 and 16-stories high, with 1,093 apartments housing about 2,596 residents. The 10.67-acre complex was completed in July 1957 and is bordered by Rutgers, Cherry, Madison and Montgomery Streets.
