☞ PROTECT: Raise Your Voice

Treasures like the 158th Street Row Houses need all of our support in order to secure their protection.

Format and customize this starter e-mail to the Landmark Preservation Commission to share your support of preservation. Be sure to include your name and address, for the city will only recognize issues based on the individual voices of its citizens.

Bonus: "Demolition by Neglect" laws empower the Commission to penalize gross offenders who let their building deteriorate with a fine of up to $5,000 per day until repairs are made. Urge the Commission to prioritize the Corn Exchange for recourse. If there are any Harlem-area buildings that are landmarked but in peril, or need landmarking, please feel free to contact us at or leave a comment below.
