On Thursday, the Landmarks Preservation Commission held its second public hearing in an effort to clear its decades-long backlog of items proposed for designation. The day’s items were those on Staten Island, and they included the proposed Sailors’ Snug Harbor Historic District. The 80-acre property has been on the calendar for over three decades and while the majority of those who spoke on Thursday supported designation of the district, there wasn’t unanimity.
