The Landmarks Preservation Commission voted today to expand the Park Slope Historic District, making it one of the largest areas thusly designated in the city of New York, according to a statement from the commission released today. The newly-protected area includes 580 buildings between 7th and 15th streets and Seventh and Eighth avenues.

“The commission’s action not only celebrates a storied part of the city’s industrial past, but the sensitive adaptive reuse of the factory complex and its contribution towards the vitality and historic character of the area,” the Park Slope Civic Council, who supported the change, said in an issued statement. “The Civic Council is united in our desire to maintain the neighborhood’s quality of life and to ensure that it is preserved for future generations of Park Slope residents and visitors alike to enjoy.” — Guelda Voien
