Crown Heights Historic District Expanded

The city's Landmarks Preservation Commission has unanimously approved adding 610 buildings to a designated historic district in Crown Heights, Brooklyn.

The row houses, freestanding houses and apartment buildings are adjacent to 472 other Crown Heights buildings that received landmark status in 2007. All were built between the 1870s and the 1920s.

Chairman Robert Tierney called the neighborhood "an exquisite mosaic of remarkably well preserved examples of architectural styles and building types."

The commission also scheduled public hearings on a plan to add a third section of 640 buildings to the Crown Heights historic district.

Tuesday's vote must be approved by the City Council.
