A special thanks to all our FRIENDS and colleagues who attended yesterday’s hardship application hearing at the Landmarks Preservation Commission!

We were so grateful to hear from Council Member Jessica Lappin, State Assembly Member Micah Kellner, State Senator Liz Krueger, Historic Districts Council, the Municipal Art Society of New York, New York Landmarks Conservancy, Society for the Architecture of the City, Greenwich Village Society for Historic Preservation, Carnegie Hill Neighbors, East Sixties Neighborhood Association, East 79th Street Neighborhood Association, Friends of the First Avenue Estate, and of course, all of our devoted neighbors and residents. Your testimony and your presence made an enormous impact, we couldn’t have done it without you!
