Dumbo Landmarking Meeting Coming Up

Fulton Ferry Park

The Landmarks Preservation Commission is holding a "public informational meeting" on designating Dumbo as a landmark-protected neighborhood. The meeting will be held on Thurday, April 19 at 10AM at 1 Centre Street, 9th Floor North. We got an email from the Dumbo Neighborhood Association that says:
The Commission will tell us their plans for our neighborhood and answer our questions. Their consequent decision on whether or not to consider us for landmark protection will be strongly influenced by the size of our turnout; a strong show of support by the people who live and work here will be decisive in getting us calendared. Elected officials who support us--including David Yassky, Sam Cooper from Joan Millman's office and Rob Perris of Community Board 2--will be there.
There are a slew of Brooklyn neighborhoods in need of landmark protection sooner rather than later, and Dumbo is near the top of the list.
