I strongly oppose demolition of the historic buildings at 14-16 Fifth Avenue, which are landmarked and should be preserved
Dear [Decision Maker],
No. 14-16 Fifth Avenue are located within the Greenwich Village Historic District and are therefore landmarked. They are also incredibly historic 170-year-old buildings constructed by one of New York's most important early families which had a profound effect upon the development of New York. They have also over the years served as the home of an incredibly array of industrialists, writers, artists, actors, civil war generals, jurists, and philanthropists. Buildings like these are the very reason why historic districts exist, and especially the Greenwich Village Historic District while altered, these buildings were originally constructed as row houses, among the very first on Fifth Avenue. The Greenwich Village Historic District is defined by its rowhouse architecture, and buildings like these should not be destroyed. It's because of this tremendous history that great scholars, writers, academics and historians have come out strongly against demolition of these buildings, as have local elected officials like Borough President Brewer, Speaker Johnson, State Senator Hoylman, and Assemblymember Glick.
Sincerely,[Your Name] [Your Address]
