Landmarks Moves to Preserve Garden Core on Park Slope Block


Remember the neighbors who were keen to protect the green space on the interior of their block from encroachment by a proposed rear addition at 115 Lincoln Place, above?

Well, after the local community board nixed the proposal, the Landmarks Preservation Commission decided it didn’t care for it either, reported The Brooklyn Eagle. LPC asked the homeowners to come up with a new, less intrusive proposal for an extension.

The LPC praised the backyard green space, saying “it does measure up to the standard of unique,” is “just so special” and has “the feel of a commons,” according to quotes in the Eagle.
