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.

Wish List PRIORITY
The IRT Powerhouse has languished in Landmarks limbo for nearly 40 years! It was prioritized for designation as part of the LPC’s Backlog Hearings. The Commission is obligated to designate it before the end of 2017 (or else it will fall off the calendar and become vulnerable to demolition). We are guardedly waiting for some good news shortly!
