Progress report on Webster Hall landmarking
Earlier this summer, GVSHP sent documentation to the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) regarding the incredible history of Webster Hall at 119 East 11th Street, and urged the Commission to consider the site for landmark designation. The Commission subsequently voted to calendar the building, or formally consider it for landmark status, and we expect a public hearing to be scheduled soon. Webster Hall is an incredibly important site not only for its architecture, but for its significance in the history of popular music, the labor movement, radical politics, and the lesbian and gay community.
