Exhibit: LPC Sometimes Digs Newfangled Buildings


An exhibit called Context/Contrast that opened yesterday at The Center for Architecture focuses on contemporary buildings in historic districts that the LPC has approved since 1967. A few of the examples the show is going to spotlight are in Brooklyn Heights, like 322 Hicks (above left) and 125 Joralemon (right). Of course, not all of these approvals have been welcomed with open arms. Per Brooklyn Heights Blog, the early ’90s renovation of 125 Joralemon was criticized by a Heights preservationist as a “Disney-like mockery of historic preservation.”
