The World Monuments Fund has placed 510 Fifth Avenue on its biannual
list of cultural heritage sites at risk, the New York Times reported.
In reference to the controversy over proposed structural changes to
the property by Vornado,
the fund said that the case “raises questions about the legality of
recent alterations and the capacity of the New York City Landmarks
Commission to enforce protective regulations.”

The building is one of 67 sites worldwide included on the list. Other
United States sites include the New York Studio School of Drawing,
Painting and Sculpture at 8 West 8th Street, the Orange County
Government Center in Goshen, N.Y and the Manitoga building in
Garrison, N.Y.

The organization, headquartered in New York City, is dedicated to
preserving cultural heritage sites around the world that are at risk
from the forces of nature and the impact of social, political, and
economic change. The sites can be nominated by governments,
conservation professionals, site caretakers, non-governmental
organizations, concerned individuals or others. [NYT]
