Preservation Issues

Hundreds of Buildings Designated Landmarks

-The Bay Ridge Parkway - Doctors' Row Historic District, Brooklyn

-Four Historic Districts in Sunset Park

-The National Society of Colonial Dames, 215 East 71st Street

June, 2019

Several hundred more buildings across the City became landmarks in June. The Landmarks Preservation Commission voted to designate four new historic districts in Sunset Park and the Bay Ridge Parkway District, two sections of Brooklyn brimming with historic resources that were severely under-recognized.

The Commission also designated the 1929 headquarters of the Colonial Dames on East 71st Street. This Colonial Revival institutional building was based on a 1750 mansion and is an excellent representative from the era of club house architecture.
