ALERT: Town hall Meeting on the First Avenue Estates, November 9th
Help Save 429 East 64th Street and 430 East 65th Street!
We have one more chance to save this important piece of the City and Suburban First Avenue Estate.
With the help of Councilwoman Jessica Lappin, the Landmarks Preservation Commission is finally holding a hearing to designate and protect these two buildings.
In 1990, in a bad backroom deal, the Board of Estimate removed these two buildings from the original landmark designation of the fifteen building complex. If they aren’t designated now, the owner will tear them down, build a large new tower, and irreparably damage this turn of the century model tenement built to house our city’s working poor.
Please come to a Town Hall forum to learn more about the historic significance of these buildings. Hear from historians, tenants, elected officials and community leaders about what you can do to save them.
