In November 2014, the Landmarks Preservation Commission announced a plan to remove 96 previously considered sites and properties from its calendar. Over the course of 2015, HDC is working to document, publicize and conduct community outreach for these sites to increase public awareness and gather support to move their designations forward. Staten Island historian, author and preservationist Barnett Shepherd will lead this tour of the Tottenville section of Staten Island, where a number of these buildings are located. These include the Prince’s Bay Lighthouse, the Brougham Cottage and the Dorothy Day Historic Site.
