Recent decisions by the Landmarks Preservation Commission have caused members of the preservation community to question the agency's commitment to preserving the architectural heritage of the city.
The Landmarks Preservation Commission yesterday calendared the 18 Tudor Revival homes on Chester Court in Prospect Lefferts Gardens, a spokeswoman for the LPC told us. Calendaring means the LPC will eventually vote on whether or not to designate the proposed Chester Court Historic District. Architect Peter J. Collins designed the houses in 1914 and 1915, according to the notice of yesterday’s hearing. The block is a cul-de-sac off Flatbush, next to the 23-story apartment tower rising at 626 Flatbush Avenue.
