NY TIMES - Proposal Would Trim New York City’s List of Potential Landmarks
December 2, 2014
The chairwoman of the Landmarks Preservation Commission, which is charged with protecting New York City’s historic structures, is proposing to remove more than 100 of them from her agency’s oversight, dismaying preservationists who say the move could endanger some of the properties.
The move would affect 94 individual structures and two historic districts that had been “calendered” since the commission was formed in 1965. Calendaring is the first step in the public review process, an acknowledgment that a property is worthy of consideration for protection, at which point hearings and votes follow.
