This just in: The Landmarks Preservation Commission earlier today unanimously approved the designation of the Prospect Heights Historic District, culminating a widespread effort by the likes of the Municipal Art Society and the Prospect Heights Neighborhood Development Council that goes back over three years. The district contains 850 buildings and is the largest designation since the Upper West Side got the nod back in 1990. “Prospect Heights is among Brooklyn’s most distinguished, cohesive neighborhoods because of its architectural integrity and diversity, scale, tree-lined streets and residential character,” said Chairman Tierney. “These features lend the neighborhood its unique sense of place, making it a natural for historic district status.” Woohooooo!
