The New York City Landmarks Preservation Commission (LPC) launched a new, enhanced version of its interactive map, Discover NYC Landmarks.
For the first time, the map includes easily accessible and detailed information on each of the nearly 34,000 historic buildings within the City’s 141 historic districts. The document makes it easier for the public to explore the city’s wide range of designated historic buildings.
“This information is invaluable to all stakeholders, including homeowners who want to know more about their buildings, community groups, preservation advocates, historians, academics, and anyone who walks through New York City’s neighborhoods and marvels at our buildings,” said Commission Chair Meenakshi Srinivasan.
The map is accessible from computers, smartphones, and tablets.
Data presented includes construction date, architect, style, building type, and original use. Map users can search for properties by characteristics such as architectural style, architect, building type and era of construction.
