We are happy to announce that the historic buildings at 236 and 238 President Street have been “calendared” by the Landmarks Preservation Commission which means that the issue of landmarking these buildings has been added to the LPC’s calendar for discussion. In the meantime, the buildings cannot be demolished. Many thanks to everyone from the St. Paul’s community who contacted their local representatives and who showed up at the press conference/public meeting last month to advocate for preserving these buildings. They are truly historic and deserve preservation, regardless of the impact the demolition and construction would have on Carroll Gardens generally and on St. Paul’s specifically (although all the better for us).
