Group Description

NYCLPC
The Landmarks Preservation Commission is the New York City agency that is responsible for identifying and designating the City's landmarks and the buildings in the City's historic districts. The Commission also regulates changes to designated buildings. The agency consists of eleven Commissioners and about fifty full-time staff members, including architects, architectural historians, restoration specialists, planners, and archaeologists, as well as administrative, legal, and clerical personnel. Although it is one of the smallest New York City agencies, the Commission is the largest municipal preservation agency in the United States.

The Landmarks Preservation Commission was established in 1965 when Mayor Robert Wagner signed the local law creating the Commission and giving it its power. The Landmarks Law was enacted in response to New Yorkers' growing concern that important physical elements of the City's history were being lost despite the fact that these buildings could be reused. Events like the demolition of the architecturally distinguished Pennsylvania Station in 1963 increased public awareness of the need to protect the city's architectural, historical, and cultural heritage.

The Landmarks Preservation Commission was established by the in order to:
* Safeguard the city's historic, aesthetic, and cultural heritage.
* Help stabilize and improve property values in historic districts.
* Encourage civic pride in the beauty and accomplishments of the past.
* Protect and enhance the city's attractions for tourists.
* Strengthen the city's economy.
* Promote the use of landmarks for the education, pleasure, and welfare of the people of New York City
