Frustrated residents of verdant Broadway-Flushing blocks are struggling to safeguard the neighborhood's stately homes against redevelopment - but are finding that having a history does not a historic district make.
Broadway-Flushing residents pushing Landmarks Commission to act
The leafy refuge of Tudor, Colonial and Arts and Crafts gems dating from the early 1900s, the area has found a home on both the state and national historic registers.
Yet, for all its historical importance in a borough besieged by overdevelopment and cookie-cutter modern architecture, the city Landmarks Preservation Commission has thus far balked at making Broadway-Flushing a historic district.
Last year, the commission completed a survey of 2,300 residences in Broadway-Flushing, and the results are being evaluated, said agency spokeswoman Lisi de Bourbon.
However, de Bourbon added: "There are no plans for Broadway-Flushing right now."
