The Bronx is having a moment, with Perry Avenue named the city's 100th historic district and a bunch of Bronx buildings under consideration as landmarks. The Architect's Newspaper asks why the Bronx has been so long overlooked by the LPC. And answers: Giuliani! According to Archpaper, "barely a dozen landmarks were designated in the borough during the Giuliani administration, thanks in part to a personal spat between the mayor and then-Bronx Borough President Fernando Ferrer, whose wife had been a commissioner....It was not until the Bloomberg administration that designations resumed."
