Can you believe they wanted to landmark a Pumping Station???

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.
