This this handsome Italianate structure of 1867 'was considered' for designation by the Landmarks Commission, and per the spokesperson I reached this morning, 'the Commission declined to act on it.' Another one bites the dust. Sad, really. It had the temerity to stand in one place in NYC for 140 years. Clearly that was its downfall.
