West-Park Landmark Designation Upheld!

A Landmark At Last!
As of 3:08 this afternoon, West-Park Presbyterian Church is the Upper West Side's newest official Landmark!  In a series of votes today at City Council, the Subcommittee on Landmarks, the Land Use Committee and the full 51-member Council upheld the unanimous decision of the NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission to preserve one of New York's most remarkable religious structures.

Please join us in sending congratulations and deepest thanks to Council Member Gale Brewer for her tireless leadership.  After a 20-year community effort, ensuring a positive outcome in today's vote was no easy task.  But the *real* work of preserving and revitalizing this landmark is still ahead of us.

Today's victory begins a new chapter in the life of West-Park.  The community is mobilized, energized and ready to get to work!  We look forward to having you by our side and will keep you closely posted on next steps.  The ultimate goal is not only to preserve West-Park for future generations, but to restore it to vibrant use.  With your help, we can do it! 

In the meantime, cheers to all!
