Stop In The Name Of Love Demolishing Landmark Buildings Press Conference!

The preservation community and the Mt. Morris neighborhood is up in arms that another landmarked building in Harlem has been demolished. Is this a trend?

Preservation advocates and elected officials are calling on the City to re-evaluate its policy to allow neglected buildings to deteriorate so badly that the only recourse is to knock them down to protect the community from danger. This is not just a Harlem problem, it’s a citywide problem that must be addressed.
