HDC regularly reviews every public proposal affecting Individual Landmarks and buildings within Historic Districts in New York City, and when needed, we comment on them. Our testimony for the latest items to be presented at the Landmarks Preservation Commission is below.
LP – 39721
BOROUGH OF MANHATTAN
GOVERNORS ISLAND – BUILDING 110 – GOVERNORS ISLAND HISTORIC DISTRICT
The largest of the proposed signage on the east elevation of the building does not appear to be sympathetic to the symmetrical façade of the structure. It would be appropriate to modify this signage to be centered and symmetrical as opposed to its proposed placement on the far right side of the façade. Additionally, the signage above the arched entryway on the east elevation appears cramped and awkwardly placed. It should be situated on the pier in a manner similar to its identical signage on the south elevation. HDC asks that the Commission recommend these modifications to ensure that the proposed signage installations appropriately suit this structure.
