CM Levin: "Full Support" for Expanded Historic District

The Park Slope Civic Council recently received a copy of a letter from City Council Member Stephen Levin of the 33rd District expressing "full support" for the Council's efforts to expand the Park Slope Historic District.

The letter, excerpted below, is addressed to Robert Tierney, Chairman of the city's Landmarks Preservation Commission. Council Member Levin notes that the expansion is "vital to preserving the unparalleled sense of place" of Park Slope, and that "an expanded Historic District is both necessary and warranted".

Council Member Levin's voice joins a growing chorus of current and former elected officials demanding the Park Slope Historic District's expansion, including United States Representative Yvette Clarke, New York State Senator Eric Adams, former City Council Member Bill de Blasio, and former City Council Member David Yassky.

Thank you, Council Member Levin!
