"I would totally support a blanket landmark of all pre-WWII buildings in the city while loosening restrictions on redeveloping postwar buildings and underutilized land (parking lots, housing projects, etc.). That doesn't mean pre-WWII buildings can't be redeveloped, but they'd face an automatic review unlike newer buildings. And it'd make sense to allow smaller modifications to older buildings without forcing owners to jump through so many hoops. That's pretty much what New York's competitor cities (in terms of economy and standard of living) in Europe are aiming at -- preserving what works, redeveloping what doesn't -- and it works well."?MidtownView [Harlem Plays Catch-Up With 9 Proposed Historic Districts]
