From the Times Newsweekly:
The Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) will hold a public hearing later this month regarding the proposed creation of Ridgewood’s fourth landmark district, the Times Newsweekly has learned.
Paul Kerzner, president of the Ridgewood Property Owners and Civic Association (RPOCA), and a spokesperson for the LPC informed this paper that the hearing will take place on Tuesday morning, Mar. 22, at 11:30 a.m. at the LPC’s public meeting room located at 1 Centre St., Ninth Floor North, in lower Manhattan.
As noted, the session will focus on the proposed creation of the Central Ridgewood Historic District— carved out of an area of the Ridgewood spanning about 40 blocks—which would institute landmark status to approximately 940 brick rowhouses built during the early 1900s. The district is generally bounded on the north by Madison Street, on the south by 71st Avenue, on the east by Fresh Pond Road and on the west by Forest Avenue.
The proposed district also includes homes in a second area bounded by Catalpa and 70th avenues between Forest and Onderdonk avenues.
