As was recently reported about in the Brooklyn Eagle (1) the New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission will be meeting Tuesday, October 19th to discuss many items pertinent to Brooklyn. One such item will be their tackling of 75 Seventh Avenue (aka 180 Berkeley Place) in Park Slope and what to do there.
75 Seventh Avenue in the Park Slope Historic District is currently a “Romanesque Revival-style apartment house designed by M.J. Morrill and built in 1888. The application is to install an exhaust duct.”
With all that we currently know about clean air which we didn’t know in 1888, it’s a little amazing that something hasn’t been done about this already. We can only hope that the Landmarks Preservation Commission will act swiftly for everyone’s safety.
We’ll see what comes of this meeting in the coming weeks and whether or not the Landmarks Preservation Commission chooses to act on any public cries for air.
