Next Tuesday, the NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission will hold hearings on the proposed landmark designation of three more Far West Village buildings: the Keller Hotel at 150 Barrow Street, the Henry J. Wykoff house at 159 Charles Street and the Edwin L. Brooks House at 354 West 11th Street. In June of 2005, in response to a drive for landmark designation of the Far West Village led by GVSHP, the City promised to expand the Greenwich Village Historic District three blocks west, create a Weehawken Street Historic District, and designate eight additional individual landmarks in the Far West Village. The Greenwich Village Historic District expansion and Weehawken Street Historic District were designated this past May (see here), while these three proposed landmarks are the first of the eight promised individual designations. For more information on the buildings, see the Landmarks Preservation Commission’s descriptions.
If you are interested in attending or testifying at the hearing, come to the Landmarks Preservation Commission at 9 A.M. on Tuesday, November 14th, at One Centre Street (at Chambers Street), 9th floor. Comments addressed to the Landmarks Preservation Commission can also be e-mailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
