For anyone still hoping for the interior landmarking of the Rainbow Room, don't get too hopeful. The Landmarks Preservation Commission will hold a public hearing on the issue in September, but it turned down an interior landmarking of the space once before, ruling in 1998 that the Rainbow Room was primarily a 1987 Hugh Hardy reinterpretation of the Art Deco look, and thus not old enough to qualify for landmarking. Of course, the space is older now, and parts of it do qualify under the LPC's 30-year rule. [City Room; previously]
