P&D Committee Submits 29 Buildings for Landmark Designation

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 sign our petition.

MTA NYC Transit Emergency Ventilation Project for the 4/5/6 Subway Line on Park Avenue

MTA NYC Transit Emergency Ventilation Project for the 4/5/6 Subway Line on Park Avenue

The Community Board 6 Transportation Committee held a public meeting on June 6 and the Metropolitan Transportation Authority had a public meeting on June 16 to present the MTA's plans for the proposed Emergency Ventilation project for the Lexington Avenue 4/5/6 Subway Line. The MTA proposes a 4-5 year project along the East (northbound) side of Park Avenue to install large fans underground with ventilation gratings along the sidewalks. The project will involve tunneling and “cut and cover” methods of construction. One lane will be kept open for northbound traffic. July 1 was the close of the comment period for the initial scoping phase. The MTA plans to end the scoping phase of the project by Fall 2016 and to begin the detailed design by June 2017.
