A Prospect Heights Historic District Soon?
Will a Prospect Heights Historic District be created soon? There's no timetable, but the disrict is said to be "at the top of the list" of ones the Landmarks Preservation Commission is considering. The news was conveyed by Atlantic Yards Report:
The Prospect Heights Neighborhood Development Council (PHNDC), with the assistance of the Municipal Art Society, has been pushing for historic designation for the neighborhood, and the process looks promising, if hardly assured.The bulk of the Atlantic Yards footprint is not within the possible boundaries.
Mary Beth Betts, director of research for the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) said last night at a PHNDC meeting at P.S. 9 that, while, no timeline can yet be provided, "it's at the top of the list of [potential historic] districts that we're looking at."
