Landmark Wish List

Our Wish List includes still-unprotected landmark designation priorities that are a primary focus of LW’s advocacy efforts. We actively monitor their status and make their case to the NYC Landmarks Preservation Commission.  Our track record is impressive – from 337 designated landmarks in 1985 to over 3,500 today (see our recent “Wishes Come True” below)!  But there is still much work to do.  Click on the images below to learn more about the Upper West Side landmarks-in-waiting.



The IRT Powerhouse by McKim Mead and White


The IRT Powerhouse has been on the LW! Wish List as long as we’ve had a list!  Languishing in Landmarks limbo for years, it was prioritized for designation in response to the LPC’s Backlog Hearings.  The Commission has promised to clear the backlog by the end of Calendar year 2016, so we are guardedly waiting for some good news shortly!
