Landmarks Considers a New Historic District for Brooklyn

This week, the Landmarks Preservation Commission proposed a new historic district in Downtown Brooklyn.  Referred to by Landmarks as the “Skyscraper District,” it differs from other recently landmarked brownstone Brooklyn areas in that most of the buildings within its boundaries are multi-story office buildings, if not skyscrapers.  Also included within the district’s proposed boundaries in Brooklyn’s Borough Hall.

The district has not yet been formally designated, only “calendared” for consideration.  We’ll update you as this new district moves further along in the process.
