Preservation Watch

Weighing in on the never-ending preservation debacle at 510 Fifth Avenue, the World Monuments Fund has included the boxy landmark in their 2012 watch list, released just this morning. Published every two years, this year's list highlights 66 of the most at-risk sites around the world. The organization included the former bank on the grounds that its recent changes have put "into question the legality of the alterations and the capacity of the New York City Landmarks Commission to enforce protective regulations." With 510 Fifth officially dubbed an endangered species, wonder if Vornado sympathizes? Mmm, probably not. [NY Times; previously]
