Crown Heights North Designated; Rally Against Elder's Eviction

New, 2 comments

CROWN HEIGHTS—The Crown Heights North III Historic District has finally won landmarks designation. The district is in large part bounded by Kingston and Albany avenues and Pacific Street and Lincoln Parkway, and, according to the Historic Districts Council, includes "an astonishing variety of brownstones, row houses, wood frame structures, free-standing mansions, as well as first-class educational and religious institutions."

LITTLE ITALY—An 85-year-old Little Italy resident has been served a warrant for eviction from her apartment of 53 years by her landlord, the Italian-American Museum. Via a note penned by the Two Bridges Council, "For an institution that purports to promote and preserve Italian-American culture, the museum fails profoundly in recognizing that among its most valuable assets are the long-term residents of the neighborhood." Local advocacy organizations will protest the eviction on March 25 at 11 a.m. out front of the Italian American Museum at 185 Grand Street. [CurbedWire inbox]
