Living with Landmarks, the sequel!

Got questions? Get answers!

The Upper West Side may soon be home to 800+ new landmarks, as the NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) seriously considers landmark designation expansion in the area between Broadway and Riverside Drive, from 70th to 107th Street (click here for a map of the full study area). The third and final of three public hearings (to consider the area between West 89th and West 109th Streets) is this month!

Please join your fellow residents, business and property owners, and a host of preservation partners for an open Q&A program about the benefits and responsibilities of Living with Landmarks.

DATE:  Wednesday, October 12th
TIME:  8:00 PM
LOCATION:  American Youth Hostel, Amsterdam Avenue at West 103rd Street

RSVP to landmarkwest@landmarkwest.org encouraged

This neighborly Q&A will feature a brief presentation by Prof. Andrew Scott Dolkart (
Director of the Historic Preservation Program at Columbia University's School of Architecture, Planning, and Preservation) on the history and development of West End Avenue and environs. The program will bring together individuals and organizations experienced in the landmark designation process, as well as the regulatory process for managing landmarks after designation has happened.
