College Point House Heads for Landmarking

On Tuesday, February 10, MAS will be supporting the designation of the Schleicher Mansion at 11-41 123rd Street in College Point, Queens, at the Landmarks Preservation Commission’s public hearing. The house dates to the 1850s and was originally the home of a German immigrant by the name of Herman A. Schleicher.

Schleicher’s estate was one of many in College Point in the mid-nineteenth century. However, by the late-nineteenth century, his estate had been divided up into smaller lots and the Italianate house was converted into a hotel (named the Grand View Hotel because of its views of the East River and Flushing Bay). Today, the Schleicher Mansion, now an apartment building, is a rare intact survivor of the once-common grand homes of College Point. MAS looks forward to its designation as a NYC landmark.
