The Conservancy has urged the Landmarks Preservation Commission to act quickly to save landmark quality buildings in Inwood as the Council vote on the proposed rezoning of the neighborhood is expected in August, 2018. In a letter to Acting LPC Chair Fred Bland, the Conservancy said a recent staff survey of the neighborhood found many worthy buildings eligible for landmarking. We also believe that Inwood Hill Park and Isham Park are eligible for scenic landmark status. Among the fine buildings we cited are the Church of the Good Shepherd and its gothic revival parish house, Public School 52, Mount Washington Presbyterian Church, and the Harlem Savings Bank. Inwood is a lovely historic neighborhood with a high degree of architectural cohesiveness defined by regular cornice heights, harmonious use of brick and terra cotta fa├žade materials and a mix of early 20th century styles. The Conservancy believes that the LPC must act to strike an appropriate balance between preservation and growth.
