March Madness: Landmarks Gets in on the Action

A new crop of individual landmark and historic district hopefuls are being considered by the Landmarks Preservation Commission next Tuesday, March 24th at its spring Designation Day. Two houses in Staten Island, Jamaica High School in Queens, and the New York Botanical Garden’s Museum building are set to become NYC’s newest landmarks.  Just behind them are three historic districts, including Fillmore Place, and eight individual sites which will be given a public hearing in anticipation of a future designation.  Lastly, a small historic district on Perry Avenue in the Bronx, a Bayside house, a Midtown mansion, and the Paramount Hotel will be “calendared,” the first step in the designation process.  Check out all the contenders in this slide show and start your bracket picks now.
