LPC eyeing Forest Park carousel
From the Queens Chronicle:
The Forest Park Carousel, which reopened last year after three years out of service, may be spinning into a long future.
Now, the Landmarks Preservation Commission is eyeing the attraction for a potential landmark designation.
“We’re actively considering it as a potential landmark and are working closely with the Parks Department on a timeline for a public hearing,” said Lisi de Bourbon, the spokeswoman for the LPC.
The confirmation from the agency comes after a representative of Councilwoman Elizabeth Crowley (D-Middle Village) told Community Board 9 that the LPC said a landmark designation for the carousel was not on its agenda.
That Liz Crowley is a very effective representative, isn't she? Just so full of accurate information...among other things.
