Tomorrow, the Landmarks Preservation Commission holds a public hearing on the Proposed Prospect Heights Historic District in Brooklyn, an amoeba-shaped area between, roughly, Flatbush, Washington, Sterling and Pacific. It would grant historic status to some 750 buildings on 21 blocks, which usually offers them protection from demolition or alteration in a way “unfitting with their historic character.” The hearing takes place at LPC’s offices, One Centre Street in Manhattan, at 1:30pm. But if you wanna weigh in and can’t get the time off, you can email them in.
