The Cloister Apartments on Chestnut Street is losing a small bit of its century old charm this week as workers remove its old slate roof in favor of a new asphalt one. Shattered shingles were tossed off the three story building’s roof creating a dust cloud and a startling racket on the sidewalk below.

Even as the remaining slate was being discarded, workers, seen below, were installing the new asphalt shingles. The Phoenix Hill icon was originally the Ursuline Convent of the Immaculate Conception.
