The city Landmarks Preservation
Commission gave three sites in the city landmark designation today. In
the Bronx, the New York Botanical Garden’s Museum Building, Fountain of
Life and Tulip Tree Allee were given landmark status together. The structures
were completed in the early 1900s. Jamaica High School at 167-01 Gothic
Drive in Jamaica, Queens, was also designated a landmark. The school
opened in 1927 and was constructed in the Georgian Revival style. And Staten Island’s Rutan-Journeay House, at 7647 Amboy
Road in Tottenville, was also voted to become a landmark. The residence was
built in 1848 and retains its original Greek Revival-style porch and
doorway. It was the first house to be built on Amboy Road. TRD
