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. The petition is closed.
