They might not be in as big of a clusterfuck as City Planning, but the Landmarks Preservation Commission has a major meeting coming up on Tuesday. Among other buildings, they're considering 815 Fifth Avenue, whose owners have been trying over and over again to submit an acceptable design because neighbors keep claiming it'll block their views and the existing building is too historic, as well as the glassy wall that is 130 Seventh Avenue South (which has divided West Villagers into two fighting factions). There are also two neighbor-angering Soho outposts, 529 Broadway and 19 East Houston Street, whose designs are accused of being out of character. Also up for discussion is the long-anticipated expansion of the Park Slope Historic District and a slew of Midtown East structures including the Graybar Building, the Beverly Hotel, and the Pershing Square Building, which preservationists aim to save before the area's controversial rezoning plan is approved.
