Tracking New York City Historic Preservation Efforts

The Historic Districts Council has created an online archive and email newsletter, “HDC@LPC,” which documents both applications to the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission for major changes to landmark buildings as well as HDC’s testimony on each proposal.

HDC, the citywide advocate for New York City’s historic neighborhoods, is the only organization to review and comment on hundreds of applications to the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission for significant alternations to landmark buildings in all five boroughs.

Each week HDC’s Public Review Committee reviews applications and testifies at public hearings as to the appropriateness of proposed changes. Through its testimony, HDC both advises the Commission about inappropriate applications and acknowledges exceptional design that sensitively treats and responds to historic buildings and districts.

In addition to the weekly e-mail newsletter, HDC@LPC can be accessed at www.hdc.org/hdc@lpc/. HDC@LPC contains archived testimony dating back to 2005 and can be searched by neighborhood and historic district.
