    Bed-Stuy Row Houses Get Landmark Status
    Row homes on Alice and Agate Courts in Bedford-Stuyvesant have been designated landmarks.

    A cluster of three dozen 19th-century row houses in the Bedford-Stuyvesant section of Brooklyn has been designated as New York City's latest historic district.

         The city Landmarks Preservation Commission voted Tuesday to approve historic district status for Alice and Agate Courts.
    Commission Chairman Robert Tierney said the "charming" row houses form a quiet residential oasis in the midst of a bustling commercial district.
    The commission also approved landmark status for two of the Manhattan skyline's most distinctive skyscrapers. They are: One Chase Manhattan Plaza in the financial district and the Consolidated Edison Building near Union Square.
