Park Slope’s Historic District became bigger and badder this afternoon after its expansion was approved by the Landmarks Preservation Commission. The extension of the district, which has been in the making for decades, includes 580 buildings, stretching from approximately 7th Street to 14th Street, 7th Avenue to 8th Avenue, and along 15th Street from 8th Avenue to Prospect Park West. It is now the third largest historic district in New York, behind the Greenwich Village and Upper West Side HDs. Councilmember Brad Lander, members of the Park Slope Civic Council and other neighborhood residents celebrated outside Manhattan’s muni building a couple hours ago.
