Letter to Robert Tierney
April 30th, 2013, 6:33 pm
In a joint effort, MAS, the Landmarks Conservancy and Historic Districts Council sent a letter to Robert Tierney, Chairman of the Landmarks Preservation Commission. In response to the organizations’ lists of potential landmarks located within the city’s East Midtown rezoning area, the Commission had identified buildings potentially worthy of landmark designation. We asked that these historic buildings be calendared as quickly as possible. Calendaring is the first step in the formal designation process and would serve as interim protection for these buildings. We noted that a building already under consideration by the Commission had already had its façade altered so it is clear that the city should act quickly to avoid unnecessary destruction going forward.
