During a two-hour meeting Tuesday at Landmarks Commission headquarters in Manhattan, Como told Tierney he supports historic districts in Richmond Hill and Ridgewood, as well as landmarking the Forest Park Carousel in Woodhaven.
The pair also talked about St. Saviour's Episcopal Church in Maspeth, built in 1847 but denied landmark status when the commission ruled that repairs after a 1970 fire had altered it too much.
Kate Daly, a commission spokeswoman, said the meeting with Como was "constructive," and that the agency was evaluating the sites he mentioned.

You read that right, folks. Anthony really, really cares about historic preservation. While he was campaigning, he constantly mentioned that he helped form a historical society to save St. Saviour's. See for yourself:
However, after taking a peek at next year's expense budget, I couldn't help but notice that Anthony only allocated a combined total of $5,000 toward the preservation organizations in his district (peanuts), and completely left out the one he claims to have founded.
So I guess he's just full of shit.
