Six To Celebrate Tours- Park Avenue, Manhattan-Pictures

Park Avenue, Manhattan
Tuesday, June 17, 2014 (WALKING TOUR)

After a years-long preservation campaign by a coalition of residents, activists and community groups, 2014 is Park Avenue’s year! In February, the Landmarks Preservation Commission held an important Historic District hearing to landmark Park Avenue’s unprotected blocks, and in April, the Commission voted to landmark the district! The City Planning Commission will vote next week and City Council is expected to vote in the coming months. Tour guide Justin Ferate led this walking tour of New York City’s premier historic boulevard and explained about the effort to protect Park Avenue’s historical and architectural significance.
