Landmarks Designates New Sites

Posted on August 4, 2016

The Landmarks Preservation Commission has actively been working to address a backlog of 95 sites that have been under consideration for designation.

During a recent meeting, the Commission unanimously voted to designate seven backlog properties as well as one property that was not on the backlog. These properties are the George William and Anna Curtis House, St. John’s Protestant Episcopal Church Rectory, 92 Harrison Street House, and Prince’s Bay Lighthouse Complex in Staten Island; the 315 Broadway Building, St. Joseph’s Church, and St. Paul’s Church in Manhattan; and The Former Firehouse, Engine Company 29 in Manhattan which was not a backlog property.

This recent round of designations means that 15 of the 30 prioritized backlog properties have been designated this year.
