Hardship Public Meeting Time Announced!

Hundreds of Thousands of 1940’s Tax Photos are Now Available to View Online!

The owners of the CITY & SUBURBAN HOMES FIRST AVENUE ESTATE continue to claim that they cannot make a profit on this property, and still seek to demolish two landmark buildings. They have submitted additional material to the Landmarks Preservation Commission that will be presented at a public meeting scheduled for Tuesday, October 29th at 1:30pm.

Although testimony from the public will not be permitted at this meeting, we anticipate that the record will remain open for a couple of weeks, during which time written statements may be submitted. Please attend the meeting and send your letter of OPPOSITION to:

Chair Robert Tierney
New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission
Municipal Building
One Centre Street, 9th Floor
New York, NY 10007
info@lpc.nyc.gov

We urgently need your support again. Please consider contributing toward this important effort to save the First Avenue Estate, and the future of every New York City landmark.
