Adventures in Landmarking

New, 2 comments

The Landmarks Preservation Commission is considering landmarking a "revered" 20-foot wall in Gowanus. What did the wall do to deserve the honor? It might have been part of a club house in Washington Park, where the team that became the Dodgers once played. Or it might not, one Brooklyn historian said last week. Regardless, it won't be the most ridiculous landmark in the history of the commission: "The agency has in the past landmarked a street grid, lamp posts, and two trees." [Your Nabe]
