Former Methodist church on 11th Street

The city’s Landmarks Preservation Commission landmarked three Manhattan buildings today. One is the 1927 former Loew’s Canal Theater in Chinatown, designed by Thomas Lamb, an architect who has worked on 300 movie theaters across the country. A second building in Chinatown — an 1868 cast-iron commercial building at 97 Bowery Street between Hester and Grand streets — was designated a landmark. The third new landmarked building is an 1867 former Methodist church on 11th Street between avenues A and B in the East Village. “These buildings collectively speak to many aspects of the immigrant experience in the East Village and on the Lower East Side in the 19th and early 20th centuries,” said Robert Tierney, chairman of the commission. “As a result of our staff’s extensive survey work in these areas, we already have designated a number of landmarks in both areas in recent years, and continue to pursue many others.” TRD
