USA: New York City Landmarks Commission Designates the Bialystoker Home
I am happy to report that on Tuesday, May 21, 2013 the new york City Landmarks Preservation Commission voted unanimously to designate the Bialystoker Home on New York's Lower East Side as a protected landmark. Although landmark status still needs approval from the City Council, activists on behalf of the building feel confident approval will be forthcoming shortly.
I've previously written about this fine example of "Jewish Art Deco." You can read about it here.
