Help us save the historic buildings around Penn Station!
This is the launch of the Coalition to Save the Penn Station Powerhouse, led by Untapped New York, the Historic Districts Council, and the City Club of New York, with additional founding partners: 29th Street Neighborhood Association, Human-scale NYC, Landmark West!, and the Victorian Society of New York. Here are the first steps the Coalition is taking:
1. Circulating a petition to save the Penn Station power plant and surrounding historic buildings that are at risk:
2. Working with members of the coalition to submit a formal Request for Evaluation to the Landmarks Preservation Commission to kickstart the landmarking process.
Speakers will include Justin Rivers, Chief Experience Officer of Untapped New York; Simeon Bankoff, Executive Director of Historic Districts Council; and preservationist Brad Vogel, on behalf of The City Club of New York.
