From the recently demolished Pan Am Terminal at JFK to the current fight to save the storied Rizzoli Bookstore in Midtown, struggles for preservation continue to wage on in New York City. Often a fight for landmark status, these battles pit developers against historians and preservationists to save sights important to the city’s history.
Curbed NY recently published a map of the 10 current most intense struggles for preservation in NYC, including many we have covered. These range from the struggle to save the Picasso Tapestry in the Four Seasons to the recent discussion by city’s Park Department on the state of the World Pavilion from the ’64 World’s Fair in Flushing Meadows. Also included are the Apthorp on the Upper West Side and Central Park.
