Expanding the City’s Biggest Historic District (Park Slope) Again


1CO2200A1105The Landmarks Preservation Commission held a public hearing last week in preparation for a vote that could add an additional 287 buildings to the Park Slope Historic District. The proposal, being considered the second piece of a 600-building extension approved last year, would bring the largest swath of landmarks in the city to 2,862 buildings.

On hand at the hearing was City Council Member Steve Levin, who presides over parts of Park Slope and, according to a spokesperson for the commission, offered support for the new extension. The commission has not yet set a date for the vote.

Swaths of residential brownstones would be protected under the new measure, as would a number of commercial spaces, some of which are currently home to retailers, organizations and churches.

Below, a look at several of the most significant mixed-use properties that would be protected in the proposed historic district.
