Gramercy Park Block Association - Neighborhood News #444

Since Gramercy Park is in the Gramercy Park Historic District, a major focus of the GPBA is Historic Preservation. Therefore, we are vigilant about the condition of The Players' building at 16 Gramercy Park South, which is an individually designated landmark within the Historic District. 

We are grateful to our neighbor Gary Papush, Chair of the Community Board 6 Parks, Landmarks & Cultural Affairs Committee, for the following resolution, approved by the CB6 Full Board on September 11th and sent to Landmarks Preservation Commission Chair Robert Tierney.

The resolution urges the LPC to "make an evaluation of the integrity of the landmarked facade" and to "develop a policy on the use of scaffolding on the front facades of designated buildings."
We are now urging our elected officials to support this resolution.
