It's about time the "Lazy Partners in Crime" did something right. Keep 'em coming, Tierney & Co! Fulfill your promise made at the City Council Landmarks Oversight Hearing at Queens Borough Hall in spring 2006.

It's about time, what's next? Erect a stone memorial for St Saviour's after it is demolished?

Long overdue.
Now let's see some more action ole Bumbling Bob
at the LPC instead of some more token schools, firehouses and public swimming pools!

Note:
Only the exterior of a house of worship
can be designated.
The sanctuary must be free from government restrictions.
Separation of church & state rules here.

Hey Is that Synagogue off of Corona Ave. & 55 Ave? Just curious.If it is, it is a great piece of architecture,albeit in disrepair...

As a landmark, this synagogue can receive much-needed funds for repairs. Ultimately, landmarking a building does not remove it from the threat of demolition or neglect.

The Republican Club and RKO Keiths are landmarked, but their owners keep them in disrepair. Remember St. Monica's Church? It too was a landmark, and its last owner was the state.
