Sept. 7 Emergency Landmark Hearing Set for Endangered Stable at 128 E. 13th Street
We are pleased to report that in a continuing show of strong resolve, the Landmarks Preservation Commission has scheduled an emergency meeting for Thursday, September 7th at 1:30 P.M. to consider landmark designation of 128 East 13th Street (click here for more information), which faces an urgent threat of demolition. The scheduling of an emergency meeting is intended to ensure that the Commission has an opportunity to consider landmark designation before the owner is able to get permits to demolish or alter the building. We are thrilled that the Commission has been so interested in this rare and wonderful building, and that they were willing to act quickly upon information we provided them with about the immediate danger it faces.
A strong turnout at the hearing on the 7th will help ensure that the Commission follows through and saves the building through landmarking.
