Please note current preservation practices in New York City:
And most importantly:
What types of properties can be designated?
The Landmarks Law requires that, to be designated, a potential landmark must be at least 30 years old and must possess "a special character or special historical or aesthetic interest or value as part of the development, heritage, or cultural characteristics of the city, state, or nation."
I hope you find the site interesting and useful.
There is also a Zoning Board of Appeals meeting coming up on May 8th continuing the assault on our environment and land. See the agenda here:
None of this should be allowed any more...
Please note the Mayor has announced they will be holding a public meeting on May28th at 6:00 p.m. at Village Hall where they will be discussing among themselves this development issue.
Their discussions have to take place in public, so he announced this at the meeting itself. Too bad, the Village Calendar is not yet showing it as such, but as a Joint Meeting of the Land Use and Law Committees. The public may not comment, but is allowed to observe. In my experience at meetings of this nature, sometimes they do allow public comments.
If you can attend, that would be great !
