The Landmarks Preservation Commission on Tuesday named eight new buildings as landmarks in an effort to clear a backlog of sites awaiting designation.

The list of newly named landmarks includes Manhattan’s oldest continuously operated church, St. Joseph of the Holy Family, Prince’s Bay Lighthouse on Staten Island and a former firehouse at 160 Chambers Street in the Financial District.

St. Paul church in East Harlem and three homes on Staten Island — the George William and Anna Curtis House, St. John’s Rectory and 92 Harrison Street — round out the list.

The commission in February announced it would decide on 30 buildings awaiting landmarks designation by the end of this year, out of a total backlog of 95 buildings.

Seven of the eight newly named landmarks were on the list of backlogged properties. The commission designated another eight new landmarks in April. [Curbed]Konrad Putzier
