Preservation Committee 

Meets on the second Thursday of the month, 6:30 PM

Karpen and Madge Rosenberg, Co-Chairpersons
Members: Miram Alexandroff, Jay Adolf, Adam Brodheim, Page Cowley, Klari Neuwelt, Michele Parker and Daniel Vasserman

 
The Preservation Committee is concerned with maintaining and enhancing the aesthetic and historic character of the Upper West Side, reviewing proposed changes to individually designated landmarks as well as to properties listed within the Upper West Side's Historic Districts. The committee may also make recommendations regarding the surrounding streetscapes to ensure appropriateness within the historic context of the surrounding neighborhood.

The focus of the committee's work is directed by the City Charter mandate that Community Boards review matters prior to consideration by the Landmarks Preservation Commission. The committee, and then the full Board, reviews proposed changes to individually designated landmarks as well as to properties listed within the Upper West Side's Historic District. A determination is made as to whether or not a particular project is "appropriate" to the landmark or within the context of the Historic District and that determination is conveyed to LPC in an advisory resolution. In making our determination, we solicit comment from the community at large and interested organizations.
