This district is larger than previous proposals. Due to the enormity of the area proposed, a total of 790 buildings, the LPC will divide the district and the hearings into 3 geographical areas, extending the existing historic districts. The Upper West Side already boasts some 2,035 landmarked buildings. By expanding the existing districts, the commission will also protect more buildings on the side streets. The result will be two-miles of almost uniterrupted pre-war grandeur. One of the most pristine stretches of pre-war architecture in the city. The hearings will take place in October.
