Preservationists want West End Ave. historic district

October 09, 2008 05:10PM

Preservation group Landmark West is calling on the Landmarks Preservation Commission to designate a new historic district on the Upper West Side, including all of West End Avenue between 70th and 107th streets. The group said developers have been seizing individual rowhouses along the avenue, demolishing them and replacing them with glass apartment buildings. The Upper West Side is already home to seven historic districts.
