The New York and Chicago Preservation Thread

I opened up this thread to highlight some positive developments in the field of historic preservation in Chicago and New York.

Let's start this off with the Big Kahuna:

Eleven New Landmarks Designated In Midtown East

Quote:
As we head into the Thanksgiving weekend, New York City can be thankful for 11 newly designated landmarks. On Tuesday, the Landmarks Preservation Commission voted on 11 of the 12 calendared sites in Midtown East.

The LPC’s Greater East Midtown Initiative has sought to preserve a neighborhood undergoing constant change. In fact, it was just over one month ago that ground was broken for the new supertall commercial tower, One Vanderbilt, across Vanderbilt Avenue from Grand Central Terminal.

In fact, this entire process was organized around the construction of Grand Central Terminal, and that’s how we’ll present these designations, for which public hearings were held on July 19 and September 13.
