  • Biographical / Historical

    Ralph Schacter worked in Greenwich with his business partner Seymour “Sy” Schwartz for over 50 years. Ralph, a carpenter by trade, and Sy, an architect, eventually founded Fawn Construction Corp, and through it their work took off. They collaborated together on a number of projects, from family homes to business centers, and are perhaps best known for their work renovating and updating the Glenville Mill in 1981 into an office park.
