250 Houses in Brooklyn's Fiske Terrace-Midwood Park earn Landmark Status - 03/18/2008

The New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission today unanimously approved the City’s 91st historic district, and five individual landmarks in Manhattan. The newest landmarks include: the Fiske Terrace-Midwood Park Historic District in the Flatbush section of Brooklyn; Webster Hall, Congregation Beth Hamedrash Hagadol Anshe, Elizabeth Home for Girls and the Free Public Baths of the City of New York in the East Village section of Manhattan; and the Allerton 39th Street House in Midtown Manhattan. The designations bring the total the number of individual landmarks in all five boroughs to 1,189.

“Today we moved forward on more than a dozen individual landmarks and landmark districts that showcase the breadth and depth of our work,” said Commission Chairman Robert B. Tierney.“The latest additions to the City’s outstanding collection of landmarks recall several important periods in our City’s history. The stately homes of Fiske Terrace-Midwood Park evoke the transformation of the Flatbush section of Brooklyn from an agricultural village to a suburban neighborhood, while the synagogue, meeting hall public bath and girls’ home reflect different aspects of the 19th-century immigrant experience in the East Village.”
