Advocacy Hub

LANDMARK WEST! was founded in the wake of WEST PRIDE, a preceding community effort which challenged Trump City and the redevelopment of the West Side Rail Yards. Seeing increased development pressures on the neighborhood and after a series of inappropriate developments along Central Park West our founders turned their attention towards greater landmarking and land use protections to ensure the neighborhood character and quality of life of the Upper West Side. These concerns are still core to our mission, even as we’ve expanded to address a wider array of issues facing our community.
