“[C]onviction and credibility, backed by the essential facts, can be more effective in defining and deciding issues of public policy…than the most adroit legal or political maneuvering.”

~ Ada Louise Huxtable

“The Upper West Side is not going to be frozen nor should it be frozen.  LANDMARK WEST! will always have a role in the neighborhood’s ongoing health and preservation.  You can never put a neighborhood on auto-pilot.  You can never say, ‘the work is done.”

– Paul Goldberger, architecture critic

“The heart of a city is its neighborhoods: the stable neighborhoods that give it a sense of community.  That’s what makes a city a home to its people — and that’s why we need groups like LANDMARK WEST!”

~ Robert A. Caro, Upper West Sider and two-time Pulitizer Prize-winning biographer of Robert Moses and Lyndon B. Johnson
