Coffee Talk- Requests for Evaluations with Mary Beth Betts


May 6

8:30 – 10:00 AM

Neighborhood Preservation Center 232 East 11th Street New York, NY 10003

Each year, the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission receives and evaluates approximately 200 Requests for Evaluation for new landmarks, historic districts and historic district extensions.  The LPC’s RFE form, available on their website, requests that applicants provide as much information about the property as possible, including photographs.  A strong RFE package can make a great impact in the achievement of preservation priorities.

The LPC’s Director of Research, Mary Beth Betts, will present pointers on filing effective and thorough RFEs, as well as answer your questions on the designation process and research resources in New York City. Check out Cityland for a recent interview with Mary Beth.

These events are FREE, but reservations are required.  For more information on this series or to RSVPplease contact Barbara Zay at or 212-614-9107.
