In December the Historic District Council of New York City held a press conference at City Hall decrying the recent spate of demolition of landmarked properties and properties under consideration for landmark status, across the five boroughs.
They are now gathering information on buildings at risk of demolition throughout the city, in order to better understand the scope of the problem.
Through an online survey they hope to identify buildings (either individual landmarks or structures within a historic district) that are suffering from neglect, or may be at risk of demolition.
They plan to use the research to develop targeted policy and process changes to improve the systems that protect landmarks.
You should submit multiple responses if you feel there are several buildings at risk in your neighborhood.
