The Reach of the Landmarks Law: A Balancing Act
June 18, 2015 @ 6:30 pm - 8:30 pm$16
Presented by the Museum of the City of New York:
When New York’s landmarks law took effect 50 years ago, it forever changed the course of the city’s history. But has its proponents’ full vision been realized this past half century? In some cases, the law may have in fact been surpassed by newer legislation in other cities. Could ours be strengthened, or are additional preservation tools needed to complement the law? At this panel, preservation experts will discuss these and other questions exploring the possibilities, limitations, and challenges of the landmarks law. This program delves into the themes of the new MCNY exhibition Saving Place: 50 Years of New York City Landmarks.
