Manhattan Community Board 10 Preservation Plan
In response to the growing concerns of the Community regarding preserving Harlem’s rich heritage,
Community Board 10’s Land Use and Landmarks Committee has developed a comprehensive planning
document that explores various methods in preserving historic buildings and the built context
of the District.
This planning document outlines the purpose, the context, and the benefits of designation. Acknowledging
that Harlem as a District is under-designated, the goal of this planning document is to
ensure new developments are consistent in vernacular and scale and existing buildings are protected.
The recommendations put forth in this report represent a collective vision of the community. This
report identifies proposals of four distinct landmark designations: individual, interior, scenic, and
historic districts. It also includes recommendation for future contextual re-zonings.
