What's next - Landmarking a fire hydrant? Ridiculous.....At least the commission had the sense to deny landmark status.
Brookyn Daily excerpt -
The Landmarks Preservation Commission has no immediate plans to
designate the Coney Island Pumping Station, commissioners announced Feb.
23 during a hearing to clear backlogged applications that have been on
the commission’s books for decades. The commission isn’t interested in
the station, which preservationists credit with helping save Coney Island from
burning down in the mid-1900s, because owners made significant
alterations and have let the building rot since it went out of
commission in the 1970s.
