FIDI, IRVING PLACE & BED-STUY?Though their fates weren't in doubt, the Landmarks Preservation Commission finally voted on the matter, and now the Con Ed building at 4 Irving Place (& 14th Street) and One Chase Manhattan Plaza downtown are NYC's newest landmarks. The LPC also voted to approve the Alice and Agate Courts Historic District in Bed-Stuy, an enclave of 36 19th-century row houses. By the way, next boom, when the Con Ed building gets converted to condos, count us in. [CurbedWire Inbox]
