We mentioned the Historic District Council's efforts to recognize neighborhoods that still need landmark protection last September and now a half dozen candidates have been selected. Six to Celebrate is an annual advocacy program that neighborhoods apply to and the selected few in return receive guidance from HDC on how to further achieve their preservation goals. This year's prestigious Historic District Councils recommendation includes the Mount Morris Park Historic District and the proposed extension of its boundaries which would double the district's size. Even though the organization does not have the official landmark authority to protect a building, the HDC is highly respected and has been instrumental in preservation movements in the past. Check out all of the six neighborhoods selected and see a map of the proposed MMPHD extension on the HDC site: LINK
