The NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission approved 4 new landmarked sites on December 14, 2010 — and we’ve updated Landmarks: New York with info on each one.
The new designations were featured in the New York Times City Room blog, highlighting the Coney Island Shore Theater building. The 3 other sites are:
- 500 Fifth Avenue Building (a Shreve, Lamb & Harmon skyscraper in midtown Manhattan);
- Rogers, Peet & Company Building (a former department store building in Tribeca, Manhattan); and
- Alderbrook House (a Hudson River villa in Riverdale, the Bronx).
Here’s the hearing notice from the LPC. [PDF]
We’ve also added 10 new photos from Wikipedia, mainly from Wiki photo contributor extraordinaire Jim Henderson. Here are screenshots highlighting the new pics (featuring several buildings on the Pratt Institute campus in Brooklyn) :
