The Landmarks Preservation Commission scheduled a public hearing for the Bedford Historic District, which extends south from Monroe Street to Verona Place (at Fulton) and east from Bedford to Tompkins Avenue. The Bed Stuy community has pushed for this district for years now and has garnered a lot of community support. This area is particularly rich in late 19th century buildings by some of the borough’s most prominent architects, including Montrose Morris. If landmarked, more than 600 Renaissance, Greek Revival and Queen Anne townhouses would be protected. LPC will hold the public hearing on October 30th at 11 am, in the 9th Floor Conference Room at 1 Centre Street in Manhattan. They calendared the proposed district on May 15.
