An mid-19th century Manhattan home will be restored to its former glory, and expanded to meet its occupants’ 21st century needs. On Tuesday, the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved the restoration and expansion of 442 West 22nd Street. That is in the Chelsea Historic District.
A new two-unit house is on its way to a vacant Brooklyn lot. On Tuesday, the Landmarks Preservation Commission approved the proposal to build such a structure at 39 South Elliott Place. That’s in the Fort Greene Historic District.
On Tuesday, the Landmarks Preservation Commission designated the 16th site from its former 95-item backlog of items from before 2010.

Additionally, two more Brooklyn structures are now on the path to designation.
A NoMad hotel will be getting a facelift. The Landmarks Preservation Commission recently approved work to be done at the Broadway Plaza Hotel, located at 1155 Broadway, in the Madison Square North Historic District.
