A New Upper East Side Landmark in 2018…?

LPC calendars a new Upper East Side building for landmark designation!

Yesterday, the Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) voted to calendar the National Society of Colonial Dames in the State of New York for potential landmark designation. The building was calendared not only for individual designation of the exterior, but for designation as an interior landmark as well!

The National Society of Colonial Dames in the State of New York built their headquarters at 215 East 71st Street from 1929 to 1930. Designed by architect Richard Henry Dana, this Colonial Revival style building draws design inspiration from iconic Colonial-era buildings across New England and the Mid-Atlantic. Today, the building serves as a museum and hosts a number of public events.

Stay tuned for a public hearing date next year!
