New York’s Landmarks Preservation Commission is finally taking on its 25-year backlog of 95 properties that are being considered for designation. The commission had proposed eliminating the items from its calendar, which would have left the sites vulnerable, but members scrapped that idea after community backlash. So now through November 12 , they will consider each property as originally planned. Here are some of the locations on the docket.
Bergdorf Goodman, Manhattan
Pepsi-Cola sign, Queens
James McCreery & Co., Manhattan
Green-Wood Cemetery, Brooklyn
Union Square Park, Manhattan
