New, 2 comments

UPPER EAST SIDE—The Museum of the City of New York will open a new exhibit that commemorates the 50th anniversary of the New York City Landmarks Law next April. The exhibit, titled "Saving Place: Fifty Years of New York City Landmarks," will explore the period before the Landmarks Law and the losses of iconic structures in the 1950 and '60s, including, most infamously, Pennsylvania Station, as well as delving into later development in the law, and the saving of Grand Central Terminal.

The winner gets $14,000, so you might as well just go ahead and submit ... something. [CurbedWire; related]
