P&D Committee Submits 29 Buildings for Landmark Designation
In May, the Preservation & Design Committee of The Murray Hill Neighborhood Association submitted 29 buildings to the Landmarks Preservation Commission requesting landmark designation. These buildings range from townhouses of the mid-19th century to multi-dwelling structures and a church built in the first half of the 20th century. They are listed on the National Register of Historic Places and are located adjacent to the Murray Hill Historic District. At this time, due to intense pressures for new development in Midtown, there is an urgent need to protect the unique character of Murray Hill as a historic, low-rise residential enclave nestled between the iconic Madison Avenue, 34th Street and 42nd Street.
Please look for future mailings—we may ask you to attend public hearings to support expansion of Murray Hill’s designated landmarks. If you haven’t already done so, please
The Preservation & Design Committee of The Murray Hill Neighborhood Association invite MHNA members and their guests to a Private Tour of the New York Public Library and a Wine Reception to follow on October 26 from 5:45-8pm.
The Historic Park Avenue Malls are the only ones in New York City that retain the original design.
The planting, the maintenance, weekly professional cleanings as well as the daily volunteer cleanings are all paid for by the generosity of the buildings that line Park Avenue and certain very altruistic and generous businesses and individuals throughout the neighborhood.
