Public Assets: Landmarks

Initiative: Public Assets

The Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) is charged with protecting New York City’s architecturally, historically, and culturally significant buildings and sites. LPC has the authority, under New York City’s Administrative Code, to designate a property as an individual, interior, or scenic landmark, or a collection of properties as a historic district.

City-owned and leased properties are historic. 665 fall under the purview of the Landmarks Preservation Commission, 47 of which are characterized as having no current use.
